Twenty-five years ago, a
small group of
people gath-
ered to create
something
captivating in
Atascadero.
With the
support of the
Charles Pad-
dock Zoo, the City of Atascadero, and the Atascadero Chamber
of Commerce, the team moved forward to create one of the most beloved events in northern San Luis Obispo County. The Atascadero
Atascadero
    Lakeside Wine Fest is a premier event showcas- ing nearly 250 wines from over 80 Central Coast wineries. In ad- dition, brewer-
ies, food purveyors, commercial vendors, and art exhibitors will
be spaciously displayed under the majestic oaks at the relaxed and sun kissed lakeside location.
In 2018, the festival was
awarded the New Times Best North County Outdoor Event due to the genuine wine tasting experience, abundance of elbow room, inclu- sion of beer vendors, zoo admis- sion, and the ability to bring your own lawn chair to relax, enjoy live music, and socialize with friends.
Tickets range in price from
$55 to $75. Early bird pricing for $55 is available through March 31. General admission is $65 and day- of tickets are $75. VIP cabanas for 8 people are available with an array
of amazing upgrades and benefits. For tickets, cabana reservations and more information visit atascadero- lakesidewinefestival.com.
A portion of the proceeds support the Charles Paddock Zoo. What’s better than drinking wine and helping zoo animals!?
