Fiesta La Ballona, Culver City's annual "Party in the Park", will be held this year on August 28 through 30, 2015 at Veterans Park located at 4117 Overland Avenue in Culver City.

The City of Culver City recently received an “Award of Excellence for Marketing Campaign” from the California Park & Recreation Society for its Fiesta La Ballona Celebration. CPRS is an organization with 3,300 members representing the 535 local park and recreation agencies throughout California. The California Park & Recreation Society's Awards Program recognizes the outstanding achievements of agencies and individuals in the areas of community improvements and programming, facility design and park planning, marketing and communications, and professional and citizen leadership.

The City of Culver City and KCET, the nation’s largest independent public television station, have partnered to celebrate KCET’s 50th anniversary, and Culver City’s commitment to the community, by hosting a special multimedia community exhibit during Fiesta La Ballona on August 29. The exhibit is a traveling arts and education kiosk which take the public through historical touch points of the region. The interactive kiosk will prompt community members to answer the question: “How do you envision a better state?” The kiosk, created by KCET and local environmental designer Melissa Castellano, was built by fabricators Dave’s Signs and Tortoise Industries.
