Paso Robles Events

Paso Robles Events range from the obvious - wine and winery gatherings - to new and interesting events celebrating emerging crops and industries such as olive oil and lavender.

There are also art and cultural events, such as the Central Coast Shakespeare Festival and more "down-home" type gatherings such as Pioneer Days which remembers the rural heritage of the area.

Paso Robles is also home to the California Mid-State Fair, which happens each year at the end of July. I grew up going each year to the LA County fair which is the largest county fair in the country, and now that I am older I appreciate everything being much closer together here on the fairgrounds in Paso Robles.

All in all, there are many events from which to choose and if Paso is your destination, you can plan your visit around one or more of these fun events.

I'll be adding events over time as there are many of them, so subscribe to the RSS feed (orange button at the top of the navigation bar on the left of the page) which will keep you up do date on the new additions to this page and others on this site.
