The Queen Mary boasts some of the grandest and intricate interior designs ever accomplished on an ocean liner. Influenced

by the Art Deco movement of the 1920s and 30s, her strong curves and geometric forms represent elegance, glamour,

function and modernity.

Art plays a prominent role in the décor of the ship. Further enhanced by the use of over 50 different types of woods from all

over the world, The Queen Mary earned her nickname, the “Ship of Woods.”

With elaborate murals, paintings, sculptures and wood carvings found throughout the ship, it’s no wonder she is widely

considered one of the best examples and landmarks of Art Deco style in the world.

Pack your vintage duds and celebrate the luxury and grandeur immortalized in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary classic The Great

Gatsby at the 9th Annual Art Deco Festival presented by the Queen Mary in association with the

Art Deco Society of Los Angeles.

Fiesta Hermosa

When Sat, August 31,10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Last but not least!!! Fiesta Hermosa is awesome and is a great opportunity to tap into your inner beach girl for style inspiration. Will I see you there?

Since 1972, the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce has produced Fiesta Hermosa, the ”largest arts & crafts fair in Southern California”. Over 300 artists and crafters are featured, including painters, photographers, ceramicists, jewelers, sculptors, and handicrafters. The festival takes place every Memorial Day and Labor Day Weekend (Saturday, Sunday and Monday) in downtown Hermosa Beach, California. With the ocean as a backdrop, Hermosa Beach is an ideal place for a summer festival with temperatures of 80 degrees and balmy sea breezes.

People flock to Fiesta Hermosa each year for not only the art fair, but for the Music – which is always of the highest caliber. There are two stages featuring live music – one at the Main Stage on the Pier and another in the Charity Beer & Wine Garden. The Main Stage features the finest “tribute bands” performing the classic rock of bands such as Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, Jimi Hendrix, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, and Crosby Stills Nash & Young, to name just a few. Rock n’ roll, zydeco, country western, and rhythm and blues are showcased in the Charity Beer & Wine Garden.
