Orange County Weekend Event Guide

1. Cars & Coffee 

August 17th

Cars & Coffee in San Clemente quickly became an institution with all automotive enthusiasts.  Why was it so successful?  The magic formula might be that it wasn’t an organized event, but rather a simple happening that grew organically.


6.  Sawdust Festival

Through September 1st

Outdoor arts and crafts festival. Watch artists create their work and buy directly from the artists while enjoying the wonderful atmosphere.


2. BBQ Music Fest

three-day BBQ extravaganza featuring live entertainment from local bands, a smokin’ food court (including non-BBQ related items), cantinas, local artisans, a children's area with animal variety show and petting zoo (Sat.), magic show with balloon sculptures (Sun.) and games. Taste and experience firsthand the fiery chicken, pulled pork, tri-tip, pork ribs, sausages... and sides that makes barbecue so popular — all while you enjoy the photo booth, catch a game at the live sports tent, karaoke lounge with live band (Fri. & Sat. night) and much more.


3. Live Music Harbor Cruise Featuring 'Flock of 80's'

Come aboard the 95 foot Dana Pride for an evening filled with fun and entertainment. Enjoy live music played aboard the Dana Pride as you cruise through beautiful Dana Point Harbor and enjoy the sunset. This unique live music event is not to be missed!
