When planning for visiting Morro Bay during the winter, you’ll have to take the weather into consideration. The winter is the rainy season and the area can rain fall a number of times during these winter months. It’s most likely rain during mid December with the week of the 17th seeing, on average, two days of significant rainfall while January is the least humid month out of the year.

There are also a number of exciting events to enjoy in the winter. 


For example, the Morro Bay Merchants Association Winter Street Fair is held on November 27th. The fair is a fun time for everyone with music, dancing, food and event an area for the kids. It’s a perfect opportunity to find unique gifts for yourself and loved ones. The Lighted Boat Parade held on December 10th is another favorite event during the holidays. Boats of all sizes from kayaks to commercial fishing vessels become brightly decorated for the holiday season.
