Every Memorial Day weekend Arroyo Grande holds one of San Luis Obispo County’s largest free and memorable festivals – the Strawberry Festival. The historic, picturesque village of Arroyo Grande has held this festival for decades, with this year being it’s 33rd time! Its bustling downtown nature and characteristic roaming rooster population provides the perfect backdrop for this upbeat gathering. This festival is the primary fundraiser for the Arroyo Grande Village Improvement Association which also presents many other entertaining festivities throughout the year.

This bright and bubbly festival is ideal for families and couples alike, bringing together hundreds of tourists, visitors and residents to relish the entertainment and festivities. Whether it’s live music, foods, displays or the abundance of all things strawberry-related, you’re sure to find something to fit your tastes and tastebuds! Stop and explore the fantastic local eateries, bars and shops during this annual celebration. For those who don’t mind getting a bit messy, take part in the famous Strawberry Stampede this Sunday- walk or run 5 or 10k!

The Strawberry Festival isn’t just food related – There’s entertainment in all forms of music and dance related acts performing across a whopping eleven stages! Music comes in all genres whether you like rock ‘n roll, jazz, or folk and blues. Look on as they crown the Prince and Princess of the Strawberry Festival, alongside the carnival rides lining the streets, and a multitude of arts and craft shows nestled between the abundance of antique and vintage stores along the streets of Arroyo Grande. There truly is something for everyone!
