Since 1972, the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce has produced Fiesta Hermosa, the ”largest arts & crafts fair in Southern California”. Over 300 artists and crafters are featured, including painters, photographers, ceramicists, jewelers, sculptors, and handicrafters. The festival takes place every Memorial Day and Labor Day Weekend (Saturday, Sunday and Monday) in downtown Hermosa Beach, California. With the ocean as a backdrop, Hermosa Beach is an ideal place for a summer festival with temperatures of 80 degrees and balmy sea breezes.
People flock to Fiesta Hermosa each year for not only the art fair, but for the Music – which is always of the highest caliber. There are two stages featuring live music – one at the Main Stage on the Pier and another in the Charity Beer & Wine Garden. The Main Stage features the finest “tribute bands” performing the classic rock of bands such as Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, Jimi Hendrix, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, and Crosby Stills Nash & Young, to name just a few. Rock n’ roll, zydeco, country western, and rhythm and blues are showcased in the Charity Beer & Wine Garden.
Fairgoers rave about our Food Court, which offers 18 different kinds of ethnic food choices. Everything is delicious – from roasted corn to Thai, Greek, and Mexican food, to tri-tip sandwiches and barbequed sausages, to the Hermosa Beach Lifeguards’ famous fish tacos. Handmade guacamole, crepes, and shaved ice creations are also popular with the crowd. And where else can you find cotton candy, caramel apples, fresh squeezed lemonaide, and funnel cakes?
Our popular Charity Beer & Wine Garden features many different brews of beers, a selection of wines, margaritas, and icy coolers served by town “celebrities”, including the mayor, city councilmen, and non-profit organizations such as the Rotary, Kiwanis, HB Education Foundation, and other civic organizations. All proceeds are returned to the participating organizations for their good works in the community.
The Kiddie Carnival features a 30 foot slide, mechanical rides, rock climbing wall and bungee jump, and games for kids from 3 to 10 years old. Pony rides, a Petting Zoo, and facepainters are sure to delight the little ones.

Artists Haunted Euth and Tina St. Claire are pleased to announce the unveiling of their newest collaborative and solo pieces at their upcoming show “Dreamland Summer”. What to expect at this show is the result of the two artists painting together both in studio and on the streets of Los Angeles for the past year. This new body of work merges their backgrounds in printmaking, illustration, and graphic design to create iconic imagery and create a visual lexicon that is definitively their own.
“Dreamland Summer” features the duo’s newest wildly colorful paintings, limited edition hand-printed t-shirts in a special collectors color way, the release of a limited edition artist's series skateboard deck and more.
Saturday, August 30, 2014 from 6 P.M. - 10 P.M.
323 Culver Blvd. Playa del Rey, CA 90293
Music, open bar and free to the public.
“Dreamland Summer” is themed on Haunted Euth's idea of basic obsession; the utter fixation on ritual and the repeating of actions converged into TS Claire's world of female empowerment and abstraction. In many ways these themes have been the driving force of both artist's work. Subliminal messages integrated into patterns, hidden agendas, references and ideology may fill the rich and heavily layered body of work, revealing themselves to only the most attentive of viewers.
About the artists:
Haunted Euth is a notorious Los Angeles based painter and print maker known for a vast array of visual works, many of which are public installations and landmarks well known around the city in which he resides. "Dreamland Summer" marks the debut of the first half of his pieces in a new body of work "Basically Obsessed" and features hand painted wood panels that focus on new patterns the artist is creating based on items and objects from his personal life, whether it be pizza and knives or pills and coffee.
TS Claire is a self-taught native Los Angeles painter whose work focuses on the theme of female empowerment and balances elements of portraiture, abstraction, design and screen printing. Her new body of work for “Dreamland Summer” focuses on a move toward abstraction, split narrative and indecision, that combines nature and design with pattern and surrealism.
