Food Booths

Food, Food, Food!  A smorgasbord of food is available on both Dorsey and Live Oak fields. Available for your dining pleasure are a variety of hot entrees – hot dogs, hamburgers, tacos, pizza, BBQ, Polish sausage, teriyaki bowls, tri-tip, and pulled pork. Quench your thirst with a variety of refreshing drinks – water, lemonade, regular and diet sodas, smoothies, lemon chill, Hawaiian shave ice, root beer floats, Snapple and Gatorade. Don’t forget to satisfy your craving for sweets with funnel cakes, brownies, Krispie Kritters, candy, donuts or ice cream. For those in-between-meal munchies, don’t miss the ever-popular pepper-bellies or other snacks like Kettle Korn, nachos, and pretzels.

The Food Booths at the Manhattan Beach Hometown Fair are a mix of old and new. Several organizations have hosted a Food Booth for many years in a row, and each year there are new groups who recognize this unique fundraising opportunity and apply to participate.

On average, there are 60 local charitable organizations that apply to host a Food Booth. For many, this is a primary source of funding for their group’s cause.

The Food Booths are staffed by non-profit organizations only. Commercial food organizations are not permitted.

Deadline for soda(non-water)/water booth lottery was June 9th.

Deadline for food booths is extended.

The 2018 winners for soda and water booths are:

  • Matrix SST
  • MCHS Girls Tennis
  • MB Badminton Club
  • MCHS Model UN
  • MCHS Boys Tennis
  • MB Rotary Club
  • MCHS Share the Care Club
  • Girl Scout Troop 11365
  • FRAM Soccer Club boys 2003

Civic Corner

The Civic Corner proudly features City services and City-sponsored community projects and services to promote community engagement and give residents and visitors alike the chance to interact with city employees.

This area is located at the Fair entrance across from the Joslyn Community Center.


Free Speech

Our designated Free Speech area is at the north end of the fairgrounds. For safety reasons, this is the only space where registered non-profit organizations and political groups from the South Bay area may set up booths and disseminate information about their cause.

Eligible groups include those where the interest or cause involves public safety, public awareness, community awareness or local issues. Nothing may be sold at the Free Speech booths, nor may physical services be provided, but groups may hand out information and pamphlets in the designated Free Speech area.

Applications are due by August 31, 2018.

Selection is done via an Application and Lottery process.
