  • September 18, 2021 San Simeon State Park and W.R. Hearst Memorial Beach Clean-Up
    Each year during California Coastal Clean-Up Day in mid-September, the Coastal Discovery Center organizes public participation in the San Simeon Bay's beach clean-up, by providing litter bags and direction for clean-up volunteers. In addition, the Center offers Marine Debris programs which include education and beach clean-ups year round. Please RSVP by calling (805) 801-0773. The Coastal Discovery Center is a joint venture between the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and California State Parks. Located on beautiful San Simeon Bay, the Coastal Discovery Center celebrates the connection between land and sea. The Center offers interactive exhibits and education programs which highlight the cultural and natural history of old San Simeon, California State Parks, and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The interface of land and sea is unique, drawing people for its rich bounty, economic opportunity, recreation and inspiration. Protection of these special places preserves them for use and enjoyment for generations to come.
  • September 18 - 19, 2021 Eroica California

  • October 1 - 31, 2021 Scarecrow Festival
    October in Cambria and San Simeon holds a special appeal! The weather is at its most spectacular and the Annual Scarecrow Festival, named to Travel Channel's Don't Miss List, is in full swing. It's a great time to experience the area at its quirky and creative best. All month long, scarecrows showcase the artistic creativity, whimsical spirit and sense of humor that is Cambria. Hundreds of scarecrows line the streets, shop windows and beach fronts of these coastal communities. The scarecrows will be positioned and displayed in well-defined areas around town that can be viewed by parking and walking. Scarecrow Walks are unique in that each display is outdoors and they can all be easily enjoyed while maintaining social distancing. Use the Visit Cambria App as a guide through the festival with location details and previews of the scarecrows.
