Atascadero, Calif. – June 19, 2023: The Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival is just around the corner, and this week presents the final opportunity to secure tickets for the highly anticipated event. Tickets can be conveniently purchased at the Atascadero Chamber office, located at 6907 El Camino Real, Suite A, or online at www.atascaderowinefest.com. Tickets are priced at $90 through Friday, after which they will be available for $100 at the event. Non-drinker tickets can be purchased for $30. This year, attendees will receive $10 in Festival Bucks to spend on food, art, crafts, or donate to the zoo.
The Festival will be held this Saturday, June 24, 2023, from 4:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at the picturesque Atascadero Lake Park. Celebrating its 26th year, the event showcases an impressive selection of premier wines, brews, ciders, and spirits from both the Central Coast and beyond. Guests are invited to bring a blanket and a low-back chair to relax and savor the scenic ambiance of the lake park while enjoying live music performances by locally renowned artists, including Chris Beland, 3 Drink Minimum, DJ Medina, and DJ RAMA.
A highlight of this year’s Festival is the unique “Roar-and-Pour” experience, which allows attendees to savor exquisite wines while observing the captivating animals at the Charles Paddock Zoo, the only zoo on the Central Coast.
“We’ve added some WOW factor fun to elevate the Wine Fest experience,” said Julie Matthews, Director of Membership. “Whether you’re seeking adventure, artistic expression, or simply a day of relaxation, there’s an activity for every taste. Activities include paddleboat riding from Mr. Putter’s Boathouse at 50% off, rides around the beautiful lake in a modern vintage sidecar by Third Wheel Tours, and axe throwing by A- Town Chop Shop. If you love painting, you can paint a wine glass to take with you or watch artist Patrick Dennis as he paints live during the event. There is truly something for everyone.”
