2nd Annual Colony Days 4th of July Bluegrass Freedom Festival

July 4, 2018

Atascadero Fourth of July Bluegrass Freedom Festival is a one-day event on July 4 at Atascadero Lake Park! Three bluegrass bands — Snap Jackson & the Knock On Wood Players, The Blue Js, and Little Black Train — with emcee BanjerDan, will entertain with 5 hours of bluegrass music. The event includes a BBQ by the Atascadero Moose Lodge, raising money for Atascadero Colony Days Parade and other food, beer, wine and cider flowing from vendors. Atascadero Printery Foundation will host the beer and wine booth, raising money for the rehabilitation of Atascadero's oldest standing Civic Center building.

This event is family-friendly, with a brand new playground to enjoy at the Lake Park, and a bounce house and other games for kids and families. Boating is available on the lake, provided by Lakeside Paddleboats and Kayaks. During the event, a bluegrass jam session will be facilitated by the Toro Creek Ramblers. The rolling hills of Atascadero Lake Park and large shady oaks provide an inviting atmosphere for event-goers during the Independence Day celebration.


Admission is free and there will be food, beer and wine available for purchase.


If you have plans for Fireworks, you can enjoy this event on your way out to the Coast!
