Classic VW’s to cruise Pismo during Wine, Waves & Beyond

The streets of Pismo will be humming with the sounds of old VW engines.

This year’s Wine, Waves & Beyond (April 27-May 1) will include a day dedicated to classic VWs — buses, bugs and more — culminating with a VW cruise through the city.

The seventh annual Wine, Waves & Beyond will also feature live music, visiting wineries, breweries and local cuisines. In addition to the 805 Classic & Vintage VW Display, events will include a winemaker’s dinner and the 805 Surf Classic surf contest.

The event kicks off with Surf Movie Night April 27 at the Fremont. One of the films being screened that night will feature Central Coast surfer Nate Tyler.
Wine, Waves & Beyond has raised over $130,000 for local non-profits. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit GleanSLO, a program of the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County that connects farmers and backyard growers with volunteers, who will harvest fruits and vegetables for local food banks.
