Fiesta La Ballona History

FLB Vintage Yellow Flag

In 1951, Fiesta La Ballona was born of a partnership between the City of Culver City and the Culver City Chamber of Commerce. It was designed as a weeklong celebration of Culver City’s early heritage.  There was something for everyone, from young to old, from swimmers to dancers, from descendants to recent arrivals.

Over time, the August weeklong event changed to fit the times. It has been celebrated in May, became a “Festival of the People”, but no matter what month, or how many days the event, it remains a time to relax together, enjoy family, friends and community.
