Come and stay at the San Benito House while enjoying the annual Art and Pumpkin Festival on historic Main Street in Half Moon Bay.  This is a fun family event to celebrate autumn that is free of charge.  Whatever you fancy, you will find it here.  There is fine art, pumpkin pie eating contest, wine and microbrews.  Try something new like a pumpkin-flavored microbrew.

The kids (and adults who are young at heart) will enjoy the haunted house.  This isn’t any ordinary haunted house, however.  It features live, I mean undead, actors from The Coastside Young Actors Workshop along with audio-animatronic figures, projected and transparent ghosts, intense lighting, sound, and fog effects.  Each room in the haunted house is based around a theme and the actors interact while in character with spooked guests, providing a devilish good time.

This is the ideal festival for anyone who loves art.  Enjoy masterpieces from over 250 artists throughout the west.  Get there early to enjoy the pancake breakfast and then enjoy more food, art and wine in the afternoon.  There is literally something at the Half Moon Bay Art and Pumpkin Festival for everyone.  This world-famous festival includes thousands of handcrafted items in booths covering quite a few city blocks. It will draw incredible crowds of Bay Area folks eager to fight the awful traffic just to see the giant pumpkins parade down Main Street.

Make sure to reserve your room early for this one.  Rooms at the San Benito House Hotel fill up in advance, as do rooms all over Half Moon Bay, since patrons look forward to this haunting event year round.  After all, the best way to enjoy the Pumpkin Festival is not to drive home after eating pumpkin pie, drinking pumpkin beer, and being spooked all day.  Give us a call to reserve a room and make a weekend out of it.
