It’s summer, and the Chamber is bringing back one of the community’s favorite summer events – Tuesdays in the Park! Our team has been hosting this beloved community tradition for years, and I am excited that we are bringing it back after a two-year break. This event offers a place for locals to gather together, listen to great music, and enjoy delicious dinners every summer.

Tuesdays in the Park isn’t just a good time – it’s a great way to highlight and support incredible nonprofits working hard in our community. Our Chamber team spends months before the start of Tuesdays in the Park working with nonprofits to get them connected to this summer event. Every Tuesday, we feature a different nonprofit, giving them the chance to fundraise and spread awareness about their work.

This year, we took it a step further. Now, in addition to supporting local nonprofits and offering a safe and fun space for the community to enjoy their summer nights, we invited local businesses to join us to grill up a variety of tasty dinners. Now we offer local wines and beer in the beer garden that you can enjoy, in addition to a new food truck menu to select from each week.

The goal was to make this a complete community event, which I can proudly say that we have accomplished. Now when you join us for Tuesdays in the Park, you can enjoy local drinks, food, and music, while supporting nonprofits. It’s what I like to call a community win! So join us every Tuesday from 5 – 8 PM until August 2nd; music from the Atascadero Community Band kicks off at 7 PM. For more community events, check out our online calendar at
