Feeling artsy? Partake in a weekend of open studio tours, which allow you to watch painters, sculptors, mixed-media artists and glassblowers work their magic inside their gallery or private workspace. Be sure to catch a variety of theater, dance and music performances, including high-level community productions, and national and international shows. Experience the flavors of SLO CAL at any number of culinary festivals, tastings and winemaker dinners.
If culture and history are your things, don’t miss out on all of the heritage day events, celebrating SLO CAL’s past, as well as all cultures from across the globe. Or perhaps sports are more your speed. SLO CAL’s temperate climate attracts cyclists, surfers, marathoners, golfers and tennis players ― and all their spectators ― who compete in tournaments, contests and races year-round.
Of course, the diverse natural landscape and wildlife are spectacle enough for many folks. Visit SLO CAL to participate in outdoor festivals and events that center on sea glass, birding, hiking and conserving the area’s original state. And what would a calendar be without loads of yearly holiday happenings? Everything from egg hunts and fireworks shows to menorah lighting and boat parades can be found right in SLO CAL.
