Thousands attend each summer to dance, enjoy music and the setting with family and friends, wind down after work or just have a great time.
Continuing our tradition of pursuing excellent quality in staging events, we will once again proudly pour award-winning Firestone Walker beers and Edna Valley wines. This year we are excited to announce the addition of an on-site pizza oven where Palazzo Giuseppe's expert pizza makers will be providing fresh-baked pies for a tasty treat.
Downtown businesses are reminded that this event attracts an incredible amount of foot traffic and are urged to take advantage of the promotional opportunities it provides by keeping later hours, offering in store specials and tying in to the promotion.

A major project is underway on the corner of Nipomo and Marsh streets that will add over 8,000 square feet of retail space and residential lofts in the core of our beautiful Downtown. Marsh Street Commons provided by Mangano Homes began development of the property in early May with an anticipated completion in the Winter of 2013. This project will enhance the transformation of the 'west side" of Downtown and create an amazing neighborhood of multi-use living.
