BE FESTIVE HERE: YOUR GUIDE TO FALL HARVEST IN SAN LUIS OBISPO
In simple terms, the word “harvest” means the practice or the period of time of collecting crops. This may be true in most instances— however, San Luis Obispo brings an entirely new definition to fall harvest and all the celebrations that take place around it.
In San Luis Obispo it’s more than just a time of year but rather a mentality of celebrating all that the rich Central Coast climate provides. Fall harvest is a season long celebration of just this. Not only does fall yield debatably the best weather across the entire year, but it also brings a soiree of harvest happenings throughout San Luis Obispo. That’s why we put together the ultimate fall harvest guide for you to be festive here in SLO.
