Fiesta La BallonaHistory

Fiesta La Ballona Days began in 1951 as a week-long celebration of the region's early settlers. People went to events - and even to work! - dressed up as Native American Indians, rancheros, senoritas, cowboys and cowgirls. The early fiestas evoked pride among the descendants of the "first families" and offered the entire community a playful opportunity to connect with its history.

The event currently features live music, vendors, carnival rides and games, community stage performers, food, a petting zoo and more. Come out and celebrate Fiesta La Ballona! Browse through the booths, taste the food, hang out in the beer garden, listen to the bands, watch the presentations, go on the carnival rides, and have some fun!

Festival has a children/youth component.
