In addition to a very popular weekly Farmer's Market and year round volleyball tournaments, Hermosa Beach holds many events throughout the year to foster family and community fun. From July through September, residents can bring their picnic baskets and blankets to the beach and enjoy free summer concerts, and in August residents can hula and surf at the Aloha Days Surf Festival.
Celebrated on Labor Day and Memorial Day, the biannual Fiesta Hermosa attracts over 120,000 visitors. A fun and highly anticipated street fair, Fiesta Hermosa presents visitors with award winning arts and crafts, live entertainment with two sound stages, kiddy rides, a restaurant cantina, along with a beer and wine garden. Other holiday events that take place in Hermosa Beach include the South Bay St. Patrick's Day Parade and Festival, as well as the Christmas Tree Lighting on the Pier.
