Get ready to raise your glass – the Atascadero Wine Fest, also known as the Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival, is here! The team and I are thrilled to bring you some of the best wines from the Central Coast for the 26th Atascadero Wine Fest on June 24 from 4 to 8 PM. Relax with family and friends by a glistening lake while listening to toe-tapping live music and enjoying unlimited tastes of over 100 premier wines from 50+ vendors. Tickets are $90, and some proceeds help support our local Charles Paddock Zoo

This annual event celebrates great wine, music, food, and art, all set against the backdrop of the beautiful Atascadero Lakeside location. There’s no better place for it! This year, the Atascadero Wine Fest promises to be bigger and better than ever. Attendees will have unlimited tastings, so you can try as many wines as you want and get to know the incredible local wines that we have right here in our backyard.

The event also features live music and other WOW factor activities, making it a truly spectacular experience. So bring your own blankets and low-back chairs, and relax in the sun-kissed location, sipping on your favorite wine while enjoying the sights and sounds of the festival.

One of the most exciting features of this year’s Atascadero Wine Fest is the “roar-and-pour” experience, where attendees can taste wines within the Charles Paddock Zoo, the only zoo on the Central Coast. This unique experience allows attendees to get up close and personal with the zoo animals while enjoying some of the finest wines from the region.

The Atascadero Wine Fest has always had a big heart for our incredible community. This is why, every year, a portion of the event’s proceeds will go towards benefiting the Charles Paddock Zoo and other community organizations and events. So not only will you be enjoying some of the best wines the Central Coast has to offer, but your ticket will help us give back to the community.

So, as the Atascadero Wine Festival prepares for 2023, I can promise that it’s keeping to its community heart. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, you can expect to experience more of Atascadero and the Central Coast than ever before. There are plenty of wineries, breweries, cideries, distilleries, and more to enjoy, creating an unforgettable summer experience!
