Last year, Fiesta attracted more than 25,000 visitors over the course of the weekend. Fiesta attendees always enjoy family-friendly activities, an extensive showcase of local organizations, a weekend dance party, roving performers, and diverse dining choices. Fiesta promotes recycling and makes conscious environmental choices by being a zero waste event.
Fiesta La Ballona began as a weeklong celebration of the region’s early settlers and has evolved into a three-day festival that kicks off the afternoon of Friday, August 22nd and closes down late Sunday night on August 24th. Fiesta is named after the La Ballona Creek, an 8.8-mile waterway that flows through Culver City. Fiesta hours are 4:30pm to 10:00pm on Friday, August 22; 11:00am to 10:00pm on Saturday, August 23; and 11:00am to 9:00pm on Sunday, August 24.
Fiesta is produced by the City of Culver City’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department and the Fiesta La Ballona Committee, which helps organize and run the Fiesta along with more than a hundred volunteers. A variety of local sponsors also help fund and support Fiesta. Information on unique and tailored sponsorship opportunities is available by contacting [email protected] or 310-253-6667.
