Morro Bay, once a sleepy seaside haven for rest and relaxation, continues to maintain its reputation for R&R vacations. But more and more, the city is becoming known for its special events that entertain all ages with music and festivities. The Morro Bay Music Festival is an event that offers everyone who loves music a chance to get up and dance. Set along the waterfront on the Embarcadero across from Rose's Landing, the day of song and music offers those just passing through or travelers an opportunity to linger, sample the oak wood-flavored tri-tip BBQ, award-winning internationally-known wines that are cultivated in the fertile valleys nearby, and microbrews that have become the rage in this city that's come of age as a fun place to be.


Californians know about the best kept secret. They make their annual journeys from San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Silicon Valley and Bakersfield to Morro Bay. And in typical Central Coast style, Morro Bay invites them all to visit, stay for a while, and partake of the music, festivities and slower pace that locals enjoy in this stress free city located in San Luis Obispo County.


From rock to pop, indie to country, the music varies during the event. The bands are top quality and always make the event a huge success. And best of all it's free! If you wonder how they can offer a free event and still raise money for charities, the proceeds come from food and beverage purchases, crafts sales and souvenirs.


If you plan to stay overnight or during the weekend, you may want to book your hotel room early. When they fill up, you can try looking for rooms in San Luis Obispo, Cambria, San Simeon and Pismo Beach. As of this posting, at least half the hotels in Morro Bay still have rooms available.
