Summer’s not quite here yet, but May is still full of free outdoor events for Conejo Valley families. Whether you want to support a good cause, connect with your hometown’s heritage, or express yourself through the canvas, it’s a great month to live in southern California.
The first Saturday of May, you can choose between two events that benefit local charities. Visit the Ventura Beach Festival on Saturday, May 3 at San Buenaventura State Beach, where proceeds will help the conservation efforts of Friends of Channel Coast State. On the same day, you can participate in Revving it Up for Education, a car, tuck and bike show in its fifteenth year, at Camarillo Airport.
Conejo Valley has been celebrating its Old West heritage for more than half a century. Come join the festivities at the 58th Annual Conejo Valley Days from May 8-11 in Thousand Oaks, California. Come to Conejo Creek Park for a carnival, motocross stunts, a “food corral”, and the second installment of the event’s newest tradition: outhouse races.
According to the Conejo Valley Guide, an even older annual festival will come to Fillmore the very next weekend. From Thursday, May 15 through Sunday, May 18, downtown Fillmore will host the 102nd Annual May Festival. Every year, the town’s Chamber of Commerce rings in the new season with live entertainers on the Main Stage, carnival games and rides, and vendors including a beer garden.
On the second Saturday of every month, you can join the Allied Artists of the Santa Monica Mountains and Seashore for a morning of creative inspiration. Come to Malibu Creek State Park on Saturday, May 10 at 10 AM for Paint-Out, a free-admission event that allows artists to tap into the beauty of over 7,000 acres of California’s plains, savannahs, mountain peaks and native wildlife.
Whether you live in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles or a quiet corner of Conejo Valley, you should always make the most of the great outdoors that lie right outside your own front door. For landscaping help this May, contact us at Enhanced Landscape Management in Thousand Oaks, California.
