Entertaining Pismo Beach Events and Activities

Whether you're looking to shop 'til you drop on your next vacation or just hoping to enjoy some live music by the beach, Pismo Beach is the destination for you. The town's easy, breezy, beach vibe is the perfect setting to explore the many Pismo Beach events and activities that will bring you back to the Central Coast year after year. 

Live Music

There's no better way to enjoy an afternoon or evening on the Central Coast than with live music at a nearby San Luis Obispo county music venue. From Paso Robles to Pismo Beach, there are many opportunities to dance, listen, and appreciate the music of local performers. Check out some of the venues below to soak up the sounds of the Coast. 



Although vacations are intended for relaxation, we can often jam-pack them with fun excursions and exciting outings. Sometimes, it can be nice to SLO down in the cool air with a comfortable chair, popcorn, and your favorite flick. Whether you're looking for a unique viewing experience like the historic Sunset Drive-In Theatre offers or prefer the modern amenities of Downtown Centre Cinemas, we invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the show at the theaters below. 



The charming towns of the Central Coast boast an abundance of local boutiques, big-name brands, and souvenir shops that will surprise and delight visiting shopaholics. Stroll down the tree-lined streets of Downtown San Luis Obispo, or discover deals at the Pismo Beach Premium Outlets during your stay. With so many Central Coast stores to explore, we hope you're ready to shop til you drop! 


Fine Art Displays & Galleries

Often times, performances and art can capture beauty, experiences, and memories in a way that photographs can't. Whether it's dance, theatre, sculptures, or paintings, exploring local theatres and galleries is one of our favorite ways to appreciate the talent of the Central Coast. Take a piece of the Central Coast home with you with a gorgeous piece of local artwork to commemorate your stay in Pismo Beach after visiting one of the many galleries or events outlined below.
