Enjoy These Free Nighttime Events in San Luis Obispo

With a thriving arts scene and a lively downtown, San Luis Obispo has so much to offer its residents and visitors when it comes to going out at night. San Luis Obispo has something for everyone to enjoy with great restaurants, local theaters, and an array of cultural activities. What many may not know, however, is that there are some great free events held throughout the city to enjoy a night on the town. Here are a few worth trying:


For those looking to explore some great local art, Art After Dark is the perfect way to spend an evening. Held the first Friday night of every month, this event showcases the works of art of galleries around the city. Each month, over 30 galleries and boutiques open their doors to let visitors explore works of art by emerging and established artists in a lively atmosphere.


Every first Thursday each month, San Luis Obispo is host to one of the city's most entertaining events, Bike Night. The streets come alive as this lively group parades through downtown San Luis Obispo celebrating a new theme each month such as Pinstripes & Pompadours or Chariots of Fire.


Spread out over five city blocks, the Downtown SLO Farmers' Market is one of the area's oldest traditions as it enters its 35th year. Held every Thursday night throughout the year, the streets of downtown take on a festival-like atmosphere with live entertainment, specialty vendors, and lots of great food to sample.


Held every Friday during the summer months, San Luis Obispo's Concerts in the Plaza is a great way to relax and enjoy entertaining live music. Taking place in Mission Plaza, Concerts in the Plaza treats attendees to a variety of music including jazz, indie pop, reggae, and swing.
