The Fiesta is a perennial favorite for families in the area. Its like having a county fair in town with all the giant carnival rides, live bands that get everyone dancing and great stuff to eat. said Susan Obrow, Director of Cultural Affairs for the City of Culver City. There really is something for everyone,
The Fiesta is produced by the City of Culver Citys Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department and the Fiesta La Ballona Committee which helps organize and run the Fiesta along with hundreds of volunteers. Last year, the Fiesta attracted more than 20,000 visitors over the course of the weekend. Fiesta attendees always enjoy family-friendly activities, an extensive showcase of local organizations, roving performers, and a mini taste of Culver City from local restaurants.
