From crunching leaves to smashing pumpkins, there are any number of sounds associated with autumn, but one of the greatest notes about this season in Pismo Beach is the musical celebrations. Here are two of our favorite fall music gatherings.
This is sunny California, and the Central Coast knows how to do autumn right. Fall events in and around Pismo Beach highlight the season in delicious ways so visitors will feel at home, nurtured, and completely satiated by their visits to San Luis Obispo County.
While we certainly don’t have the monopoly on fun in Pismo Beach, the SeaCrest OceanFront Hotel’s location makes it easy for our guests to take advantage of a multitude of area events and attractions during their stay. Here are some of our top picks for October entertainment in Pismo Beach.
Some Pismo Beach visitors make their way here specifically to support a cause. September is chock-full of worthwhile events benefiting various groups, so whether you’re local, just visiting, or making an annual stop on the Central Coast, consider registering to take part in the following happenings and contribute mightily to the Pismo Beach community.
Beaches may bring to mind lazy days and lounging, but Pismo Beach is a treasure trove of activity for the able-bodied who have energy to spare.
Choose Your Fitness Speed on the Central Coast
There are fitness classes in Pismo Beach to suit everyone’s speed, interests, and abilities. Just spending a few days in Pismo? Drop in for a fun diversion. Expecting a longer stay on the Central Coast? Sign up for ongoing camps or courses.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more scintillating way to ring in the summer than with fine wine and fine people in one of the finest locations on the Central Coast. For the 23rd year, San Luis Obispo County proudly hosts Roll Out the Barrels, a signature event where good vibes, great wines, and happy folks come together for four delicious days.
Get Those Blues on the Run
Roll Out the Barrels kicks off its long weekend– June 20-23, 2013 – with a Thursday night grand tasting. “Barrels in The Plaza” is held adjacent to the historic Mission in downtown San Luis Obispo. The treats prepared by local chefs for this event are artfully paired with SLO wines for some amazing taste explosions.
On Friday night, San Luis Obispo wineries take the wine and food tastings one giant step further, teaming up with area restaurants to offer a stunning selection of winemaker’s dinners, whatever your taste.
Pismo Beach never has a shortage of things to do, especially in Summer. May and June are two of our favorite months for Central Coast events and celebrations.
Wine and Surf for a Good Cause
It’s that time of year again! Wine, Waves, and Beyond is the classic surf and wine event that celebrates San Luis Obispo wine country and the unique Pismo Beach surf culture. The events – surf contests, movie night, scrumptious dinners, wine and beer tastings, a VW display, live music, and more – take place at various venues throughout the county and all proceeds support the Association of Amputee Surfers (AmpSurf), a non-profit organization dedicated to educating and rehabilitating individuals with disabilities through the healing power of the ocean.
There are always plenty of festivities to attend on Memorial Day weekend, but folks in the know opt to be in the historic Village of Arroyo Grande, just down the road from Pismo Beach, for the annual Strawberry Festival. Thousands of visitors make their way to Pismo Beach’s neighboring town to participate in or simply attend this merry festival.
You don’t have to be super-sentimental to plan a successful romantic getaway with your sweetheart. Though Pismo Beach may not be the first destination that comes to mind when you think of sneaking away with your partner, by the end of a few days and nights on the Central Coast, you’ll consider Pismo right up there with Paris.
