Fiesta La Ballona, Culver City's "Party In The Park" returns on August 22-24 at Veterans Park in Culver City.

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, special appearances, and diverse dining choices.

The popular Culver City event features live music, food trucks and a variety of food concessions, a beer and wine garden, carnival rides, artisan wares, and many family-oriented attractions for all ages. Veterans Park is located at 4117 Overland Avenue in Culver City. Admission is free.

Fiesta La Ballona began in 1951 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 22 and closes down late Sunday night on August 24.
