“Blue Jeans and Country Dreams,” this year’s Fiesta theme, evokes vivid images synonymous with our Hidden Hills. From the City’s earliest beginnings, Blue Jeans have played a huge roll within the City.
Whether 501 Levis on horseback, Jorts (jeans shorts) of the early 80’s, to the designer jeans of today, you can bet blue jeans witnessed a few or more Hidden Hills Fiestas over the years. And Country Dreams is why we are all here, isn’t it? Our little slice of heaven is exactly that, a Country Dream. An escape from reality. A slower pace of life. A place where you know your neighbors like family and join them each week for a BBQ, walk or ride.
This year’s Hidden Hills Fiesta, our annual tradition, celebrates just that: the Blue Jean lifestyle and the Dream that is our Hidden Hills. Now in its 56th year, Fiesta weekend gives all of us a chance to relax a bit and celebrate the incredible community that we are privileged to live in. It’s more than a carnival, parade, and In-N-Out Burger. The Saturday night Community Dinner sold over 1,000 tickets last year. With just over 1,800 total residents, theoretically over 50% of our City residents enjoyed each other’s company over a meal, a drink and fun.
The following pages of this year’s Fiesta brochure tell you everything you need to know about this upcoming September event. Take a moment and explore the variety of offerings (including some new ones) for residents of all ages. We bet you will find something that excites you and your family.
So dust off your old Levi’s or find those perfectly cut designer jeans and join your friends and neighbors at the Hidden Hills 2017 Fiesta.
See you there!
