Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival

The Place to be on Memorial Weekend

The Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival was named “The Place to be On Memorial Weekend” by Sunset magazine. As one of California’s largest festivals and the premiere festival on the Central Coast, this family-style event brings together thousands of visitors and residents to enjoy activities and entertainment. The wonderful May weather and ambiance of the historic downtown Village also add to the festival’s merriment.

2018 will be the 35th Annual Festival and will take place on May 26th and 27th. As one of the Central Coast’s largest festivals, this family-style event brings together thousands of visitors and residents to enjoy activities and entertainment, the Strawberry Stampede, hundreds of art, craft and display booths, ethnic foods, and of course… scrumptious strawberry treats of all kinds: in shortcakes, funnel cakes, milkshakes, ice cream and by the box!

The Festival’s entertainment line-up is once again packed with captivating performers on eleven stages throughout the Village! Most types of popular music will be featured including ethnic, folk, blues, reggae, jazz, country, funk, Latin, and rock ‘n roll.  For parking, transportation and schedule of activities, click here.
