Due to the moderate climate and proximity to the beach, locals and tourists alike can enjoy a bonfire on the beach, hiking along the dunes, strolling the boardwalk overlooking the dunes, horseback riding, or golfing. Increasingly popular family oriented events are the Sunday afternoon concerts in the park and a farmers market, held every year from June through September.
Stone Soup Music Festival & Ethnic Street Faire
To celebrate our community’s diversity, a yearly Ethnic Street Faire and Stone Soup Music Festival is sponsored by the City of Grover Beach and the Chamber of Commerce
. The event includes the annual "Dune Run Run" (a 5K/10K run/walk that traverses city streets, beach boardwalk, and hard and soft packed sand) and food and craft booths filling Ramona Garden Park
and spreading out into the streets. With a variety of ethnic music, as well as jazz, bluegrass, and folk rock performances on Saturday and Sunday, dancing in the streets is encouraged!
