Avila Valley Barn Halloween Celebration with Petting Zoo & Pumpkins

Avila Valley Barn, 560 Avila Beach Drive, San Luis Obispo, CA. avilavalleybarn.com



Avila Beach is an unincorporated beach town in San Luis Obispo County that captures time in a bottle with seasonal displays and a community gathering place at Avila Valley Barn. This long-time market that sells fresh harvests of fruits, vegetables and produce, much of it locally grown, is a family-run business that makes everyone feel welcome.

Come Halloween, the barn, farm yard, and kiddie train ride through the fields of corn make for an entertaining day in the country--yet this valley location is next to the beach! Such scenic places are becoming more difficult to find in California, so it's no wonder that the parking lot fills up on weekends, Halloween and Christmas, as young and old come to celebrate the seasons in a friendly spot. Selling dozens of types of pumpkins, offering bales of hay for kids to play on in a children's maze, a petting zoo with goats, and creating a special set with hay, pumpkins and barn decor where parents can bring their cameras and photograph their kids for free, Avila Valley Barn is one of the high spots in our visits to the California Central Coast beaches.

Some come to stay at the serene Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort just around the bend, with private hot tubs outside your door or at the beach hotels on the other side of the hill along the oceanfront. Favorites include the new hotels such as Avila La Fonda Inn and Avila Lighthouse Suites right at the beach.

Other activities with farm fresh produce include the weekly farmer's market in the village at the beach.
