BUY TICKETS (Available June 1st)
The name “Well-O-Rama” comes from a historical event that started in 1968 as a celebration of the completion of Highway 1, and the paving of Cleveland Avenue. The original event included a parade, bike races, sack races, a pie-eating contest, and a slipper-kicking contest. Arts, crafts, all kinds of food, and antique vehicles were on display, and variety shows included musical acts, street dancing, singing, and more. The event expanded over the years to become a three-day festival, including fashion and motorcycle shows, tractor pulls, carnivals, a Miss Well-O-Rama pageant, and a beard-growing contest. It went on for a decade before coming to an end around 1980.
