With things changing so quickly, we are doing to our best to accurately reflect event details and we encourage you to check directly with the event to confirm dates and times.

Enjoy the harmonic, soulful sounds of blues music at the Avila Beach Blues Festival, held every year on the Sunday before Memorial Day. Attend one of the largest spectator car events in the nation featuring more than 1,000 show cars—the Annual Classic at Pismo Beach. A visit to wine country wouldn’t be complete without attending an annual wine event, such as the Paso Robles Wine Festival in May or the Central Coast Wine Classic in August.
