Wine and food lovers can celebrate in the style and casual atmosphere of the Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival June 23, 2012. It's an unprecedented wine festival, celebrating California's Central Coast Wine Region with an incredible bounty of food, fine art, wine and live entertainment in the "Norman Rockwell" setting of Atascadero Lake Park. Participants experience first-hand the diversity and world-class quality of the region's artisanal wine, food and distinctive epicurean experiences.

Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival will be hosted at Atascadero Lake Park on Saturday, June 23, 2012. This signature event brings together more than 64 wineries, and a dozen chefs offering their renowned wines and food for tasting and sampling. You'll have a unique opportunity to speak with winemakers and vineyard owners about the wine and history of the wine experience. An exclusive artist's showcase will be infused throughout the lakeside venue and live music will compliment your wine tasting experience.

The Atascadero Lakeside Wine Festival is presented by a group of dedicated volunteers. Beneficiaries of the event include Atascadero's Charles Paddock Zoo and local community projects.
