Description

The Pismo Beach Clam Festival is one of the largest annual events held in Pismo Beach, with attendance reaching 15,000 people and greater for the three-day event. Enjoy live bands, delicious clam chowder, great vendors, family friendly games and expanded kid zone and much more in the Classic California town of Pismo Beach!

NEW THIS YEAR! The 2018 Clam Festival is a special year for the City of Pismo Beach, as the event will also mark the grand reopening of the iconic Pismo Beach Pier. Come at 10am Saturday morning to view the annual Parade, and follow the last entrant into the heart of the festival in the Pismo Pier Parking Lot for a very special ribbon cutting ceremony followed by a Pierfest VIP Celebration. Pierfest will feature signature wood fired pizzas and salad from Giuseppe's Cucina Italiana, dessert bites, live music by Wordsauce, with beer & wine available for purchase from our expanded Pier Garden.
