Kiwanis of Greater Pismo Beach

For over 50 years the members of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Pismo Beach have dedicated themselves to their local community and especially the welfare of the youth. Collectively they have volunteered thousands of hours and made substantial monetary donations to help insure that this community is a model for America.


The Strawberry Stampede is an annual fundraising running event held in conjunction with the Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival. There are three different races to choose from: a 5K Run, a 10K Run, and a 5K Walk.


The Strawberry Stampede takes place in the Village of Arroyo Grande, California. The start/finish line and registration is located at the corner of Short Street and Nelson Street adjacent to Heritage Park.
