Atascadero Wine Festival

Atascadero Wine Festival

Anybody been to this festival? Despite being a ‘local’ and resident of Atascadero I have yet to attend – though with all the ‘buzz’ on this event, I’m planning to attend this year.

Imagine.. they have over 80 wineries participating, a bevy of chefs creating all sorts of culinary wonders, as well as the required live music and art.

I do have to say that the setting for this event is lovely – sited at the Atascadero Lake Park. And those of you with younger ones might find this a great event to frequent in that the Lake Park is also host to the Atascadero Zoo. Bring friends, and kids and folks can take turns enjoying the wines, then visiting the zoo animals! There is room galore for setting up your own picnic space, and a great playground for the kids.

The Lake Park is located off HWY 41 West on the left side of the road, about 1 mile from hwy 101. The address for your GPS is 9305 Pismo St. Atascadero, Ca. 93422

If you haven’t ventured into Atascadero (the Southern step-sister to Paso Robles) this might be your “to-do” event. For more information contact the organizers at: www.atascaderowinefestival.com

Enjoy this new discovery!
