Music festivals, car shows, wine events, holiday celebrations—these are just a few of the annual events you can attend when visiting Avila Beach. Each month brings a new and fun event, and Avila Village Inn is the perfect place to stay in-between all the exciting festivities.
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.
