- What’s Happening Around Downtown in March?
There is an old saying that goes, “Home is where the heart is.” For me, nothing could be truer than that. I live, play and work Downtown which is indisputably the heart of San Luis Obispo; some would even argue that it is the heart of the county. And in that heart there is one event, every week, that draws our community together: Thursday night Farmers’ Market in SLO.
- Announcing Our 2015 Concerts in the Plaza Lineup
The San Luis Obispo Downtown Association proudly announces the 2015 Concerts in the Plaza musical lineup. 2015 marks the 20th Anniversary of the most popular free concert series on the Central Coast. From more than 80 applicants (a record!), 14 of the area’s greatest musical groups were selected to play for the upcoming annual concert season that kicks off Friday, June 12 and runs every Friday through September 11.
