Fiesta Hermosa

10:00am to 6:00pm

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.

Wide Brimmed Sun Hats w/ Corina Haywood

1450 Ocean - Camera Obscura building

1450 Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, 90401

11:00am to 5:00pm

We will be making large brim summer straw sun hats from close-woven panama straw blanks from Ecuador. You will learn how to block a basic crown shape in your size and hand sew a head ribbon. I will have a choice of trim options for you but because it is hard to know what everyone will like for decoration on their hat, I ask that you bring something from home that you can use as a hatband (you can also trade with a classmate;) such as: ribbons, scarves, belts, leather cord, lace etc... We will use traditional millinery and avant-garde techniques to create a unique look for each hat. In this one day class you will learn to make a great, practical and elegant sun hat in your size. Prior millinery, art, craft, design or hand sewing experience is strongly recommended. Material fee includes panama straw hat blank, millinery needles, millinery thread, grosgrain ribbon and options for decorative trims.
