Trailpalooza 2024 Outdoor Festival


The event is organized by Santa Maria Valley Open Space, which aims to establish public trails in a natural setting for hiking, cycling, and horseback riding. These trails will allow passive and spontaneous access and serve the Santa Maria Valley and surrounding areas.

Attendees can register for a 5, 10, or 15-mile trail run/walk or join the mountain bike race on a new short track that is full of jumps and technical features.

Following the races, attendees can indulge in local cuisine and entertainment, all in support of Santa Maria Valley Open Space, a nonprofit dependent on contributions for trail upkeep and expansion.
