Half Moon Bay Events for the Whole Family

Half Moon Bay Events are usually based around annual events and festivals. Many of these festivals and activities are ideal for guests who have brought their families along for the ride. Half Moon Bay is located on the beautiful coast of San Mateo County and boasts many water-based activities that are perfect for travelers. If you're traveling with kids, BBOnline recommends taking part in one or any of the following Half Moon Bay Events.

Lemos Farm
12320 San Mateo Road (Hwy 92)
Half Moon Bay, California 94019
(650) 726-2342

The Lemos Farm has been owned and operated by the same family since 1942. Specializing in pony rides and a unique petting zoo, the Lemos Farm is the ideal place to bring the entire family. In addition to its daily activities, the Lemos Farm hosts two unique events that are exclusive to Halloween and Christmas. The Lemos Farm "Halloween On The Farm Pumpkin Patch" is world famous and brings both locals and tourists to the farm to pick pumpkins and take photos with scary ghosts. During Christmas, Lemos Farm transforms into a holiday wonderland filled with wonderful decorations and the opportunity to purchase your very own Christmas Tree. If you are looking to have a birthday party at Lemos Farm, it's possible to rent out the OK Play Corral as well as your own private Corral. The Lemos Farm is close to any Half Moon Bay Inn you choose to stay at.

Phipps Country Store and Farm
2700 Pescadero Rd.
Pescadero, California 94060
(650) 879-1032


The Phipps Country Store and Farm sells some of the finest berries and preserves in the region. Although most people come to the farm to purchase fruit, it is possible to take your family on a berry picking adventure. Depending on the season, guests of Phipps Country Farm have the opportunity to pick everything from Strawberries to Boysenberries to Olallieberries. The berries at Phipps Country Store cost $3.00 a pound and can either be hand picked or purchased in the store. Berry picking events usually run until the winter and then start up again in spring of each year. The Phipps Country Store and Farm is the ideal place to go for Half Moon Bay Events and activities.

Art and Pumpkin Festival
735 Main Street
Half Moon Bay, California 94019

BBOnline recommends the Art and Pumpkin Festival to all families and guests of any Half Moon Bay Inn. The festival takes place October 16th and 17th each year, and includes everything from award winning pumpkins to live music. Travelers and their families are encouraged to walk around the Art and Pumpkin Festival and explore everything from haunted houses to homestyle foods. The festival always starts with a pumpkin "weigh off" to see who has raised the largest pumpkin of the year. Three live music stages paired with unique pumpkin carving booths make this the perfect place for travelers of all ages. Because the festival is located on main street, it should be very close to your Half Moon Bay Bed and Breakfast.
