Tickets are now on sale for an Afternoon of Epicurean Delights (AED), the Central Coast event that keeps people coming back year after year. We will be celebrating the 29th year of this spectacular event on Sunday, June 5th. The historic Chapman House by the Sea in Shell Beach will open its gates and welcome guests from 11:30 to 3:30.

Please join us for a day filled with music, lovely gardens, panoramic ocean views and renowned food and beverages.

Get your tickets early, as we sold out last year. We don‛t want you to find yourself standing outside the gate looking in at the exquisite Estate grounds and wishing that you were inside.

Tickets are $125.00 and may be purchased online through Brown Paper Tickets, or directly from the Community Action Partnership Health & Prevention Division office: phone (805) 544-2498. Complimentary shuttles start at 11:00 am from Shell Beach Elementary School and Pismo Beach City Hall.
