OVER 75 TONS OF SNOW! One of Central Coasts Largest Holiday Events!

Winter Wonderland is a snow-driven event you don't want to miss! Mark your calendars for Friday, December 9th from 5-9 pm in Downtown Atascadero! 


Atascadero’s Sunken Gardens and the entire downtown will be transformed into a magical snowy paradise! 75 Tons of snow will create a massive snow slide built by the Kiwanis Club of Atascadero, Cuesta Springs Ice Company & Premier Ag! In addition, there will be two large snow pile areas for the kids!  


This year’s snow-themed event also includes Joe’s Little Train operated by the Elks Club of Atascadero, two Euro bungee jumps, an obstacle course, a gladiator joust, bounce houses, face painting, caricature artist, and of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus!
