Volunteers receive a festival t-shirt, snacks, and a complimentary ticket to use or to give to a friend. Those who volunteer for the closing shift (7:45 p.m. – 10 p.m.) also receive an Atascadero Wine Passport valued at $75 to use for the rest of the year. To volunteer, sign up at https://www.atascaderolakesidewinefestival.com or contact Dawn Smith at [email protected] or (303) 968-7049.
Celebrating its 25th year, the festival features over 100 wineries, breweries, food purveyors, and art exhibitors. Attendees may bring a blanket and low-back chairs to enjoy the live music by Erin and the Earthquakes, Chris Beland, and Déjà vu.
“I’m thrilled that we are able to celebrate the 25th anniversary of an event that highlights our community and surrounding areas,” said Barbie Butz, a founding member of the festival. What began as ‘Cabernet and Cousins’ 25 years ago has now grown into a truly notable festival. We want to thank everyone, including our previous volunteers, artists, and commercial vendors, who have helped us grow to be one of the most popular festivals around.”
Tickets cost $70 or $80 at the gate. Non-drinker tickets are $20. Tickets can be purchased at the Atascadero Chamber office at 6907 El Camino Real, Suite A, or online at atascaderolakesidewinefestival.com. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Charles Paddock Zoo to support its new sloth and alpaca exhibit.
