Back-to-Back Summer Festivals in Paso Robles

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/93/Texas_State_Fair_Skyway_2.jpg

With the arrival of summer comes a different type of conundrum than we are sometimes accustomed to in the quieter months: instead of a shortage of events, the dilemma lies within the abundance of choices! Look no further to cut right to the chase, as we’ve done all the leg work to highlight for you all the best that beautiful Paso Robles has to offer in the upcoming weeks:

Mid-State Fair, July 16-27: You might feel surprised at the length of this festival, but given how much is offered during, it’s a wonder they managed to jam-pack it all in! In the beautiful, sprawling State of California where you can find it all, over the course of these 11 days, all has been centralized conveniently for you so you don’t have to look quite so far! With five grandiose stages showcasing elite musical talent, carnival rides, equestrian shows and shooting galleries (to name a mere few!) this is the ultimate fair that all others aspire to

Concerts in the Park, July 18: If only we could all personify that viral e-card of an office worker throwing up his papers, declaring “forget this, it’s music festival season!” Now there is no better reason to than for this concert series, held each Friday (luckily after the work day, so no document tossing required!) from 5:30-7:30pm at the City Park Gazebo. Featured this Friday, July 18th is the talented group Rob Larkin & The Wayward Ones, strumming a refreshing composite of rock, soul, and Americana.

Olive Festival, August 16: If the Greek knew to incorporate it into almost every constituent of their cuisine, we should all follow their lead and enlighten ourselves on this complex and dynamic fruit (or as some would consider, vegetable!) The opportunity to do so is provided from 10am-5pm at the Paso Robles Downtown City Park, where local olives will be the source of sampling, education, and culinary competition.

At the Adelaide Inn, we would be honored to offer you a comfortable place to rest your head after a bustling festival day. By booking one of our luxurious and affordable rooms, you will be treating yourself to the perfect accommodation complement to your perfect vacation.

Cure for the Common Wine Tour

Thursday, September 26, 2013

 

Need a bit of excitement with your vino?  Look no further – you can now (literally) get off the beaten path in a custom 4x4 Jeep tour that will show you the highlights of the Paso Robles wine country.  Grab your hat, sunscreen, camera and some friends and hop aboard for a truly unforgettable day with Cloud Climbers Wine Tours

 

Starting from right here in Paso Robles (or any of the surrounding areas) the jeeps make their way through the Paso Robles back country, much of which is inaccessible to a normal vehicle.  You’ll be whisked from tasting room after tasting room, truly taking the ‘scenic route’.  You’ll head right through vineyards, wind through canyon trails, and go up and over some high peaks on dirt road ridgelines.  Photo opportunities abound, including scenic overlooks of the entire Paso Robles wine region. 

 

 

You can also expect to taste some outstanding wines from some of the Paso Roble’s top vineyards.  Sit back and relax with a glass of Chardonnay at the Adealaidia Winery, which was awarded 92 points in 2012’s Connoisseur’s Guide to California Wine.  Sip on a decadent Syrah at the Rancho de Cielo (Ranch in the Sky), the newest addition to the Carnia Cellars family.  For a unique (and delicious!) taste, try the wines at the Whalebone Vineyard – where fossilized seashells and ancient whale bones are found amongst the shale and limestone soil, giving the grapes a very distinct flavour.  All this and many more vineyards and wineries await you on this very unique tour.

 

In between tasting rooms, you’ll also get the opportunity to learn some of the rich history of the region.  The “Paso” area was first known for its thermal mineral springs thousands of years ago by the Salinan Indians.  During the late 18th century, the region and its hot springs became a popular stop along the Camino Real Trail, and as word spread visitors were coming from the Pacific Northwest, Idaho, and eve Alabama.  As the region grew in popularity the fertile soil of the area drew ambitious farmers to establish cattle ranches, dairy farms, and various orchards for fruits and nuts.  Today the region is best known for its world class wines, year round pleasant weather, and abundance of outdoor recreation activities.

 

Cloud Climbers Wine Tours can accommodate up to 5-7 passengers in each vehicle, but groups of 8 or more and family tours can be arranged by contacting them ahead of time.  Each Jeep is equipped with safe and comfortable seating, a professional driver, and a removable canopy for days where the weather won’t cooperate.  Tours typically run for a full 5-6 hours, so its recommended guests dress for the weather.  When you arrive back at the hotel you can dive into our onsite pool, practice your short game on our mini golf course, or simply kick back and relax in one of our spacious guestrooms at the Adelaide Inn.

Rock Out at the California Mid-State Fair, July 17-28th

Friday, June 28, 2013
The first thing that comes to mind when people think of things to do in Paso Robles are the wine festivals.  It’s true, Paso Robles produces some of the best and most beautiful wine you will find in California, and even the world.  More than 25 varietals of grapes are grown in our region, and our annual Zinfandel Festival is one of the most eagerly anticipated wine festivals of the year.  But there’s more to us than just our delicious wine…
 
Summer brings the return of the annual California Mid-State Fair, the “Biggest Little Fair Anywhere.”  Since it first opened in 1946 as the humble San Luis Obispo County Fair, Paso Robles has been host to this spectacular 12 day event, which has become the must-see-and-do party of the summer, chock full of plenty of fun, food, great entertainment, beautiful exhibits, and some of the best concerts put on by international superstars.
 
 
July 17th sees the kick off of this year’s party and the lineup of events for 2013 promise to delight and never disappoint.  There is so much to do at the Fair, 12 days won’t seem like enough!  Daily entry starts at $6 for children and $10 for adults.  From Livestock and Equestrian shows, to children’s Mutton Bustin’ Rodeos and the always hilarious Diaper Derby, there’s plenty of things to do and see to keep you entertained each and every day you attend.  Exquisite and awe-invoking exhibits are all throughout the Fair, with beautiful fine art, photography, industrial, home and craft displays to inspire and get your creativity flowing. 
 
Make sure to take a peek at the beautiful Tractor Restorations featured each day, where passionate artists of their own right have painstakingly worked to re-beautify icons of our days gone by.  And of course, what Fair would be complete without a proper Carnival, filled with all your favourite county fair rides?  Wristbands for the Carnival are just $30-$35 depending on the day you attend and get you access to all the unlimited spins, flips and stomach-churning rides your heart desires.
 
 
While the carnival, events and the exhibits make up the real meat of the Mid-State Fair, it’s no secret that the real draw and most celebrated and anticipated part of the show are the summer concerts put on each day of the Fair.  Now, this is not your average concert musical fare.  Global superstars from every genre gather to headline each night of the festival, and the Fair has been host to some of the biggest names in the music industry over the years, and across all genres.  There’s something for everyone to enjoy.  This year’s lineup features such superstar talent as Tim McGraw, John Mayer, Van Halen, Huey Lewis and the News, and American Idol’s Adam Lambert.  Tickets can be purchased on-site on the day of each show, so be sure to lineup early so you don’t miss out!
 
Our beautiful Adelaide Inn is located less than 10 minutes away from the Fairgrounds and offers the perfect place for you to wind down your night after a fantastic day at the fair.  Our beautiful rooms offer some of the finest in luxury California hospitality, with pillow-top mattresses on every bed to comfortably cradle your weary body each of the 12 nights after the fair.
