More about Paso ArtsFest and Studios on the Park
Paso ArtsFest is a festival of the arts organized by Studios on the Park, a nonprofit, open studios art center in the heart of historic downtown Paso Robles, with 14 working artists, five galleries and a fine craft gift shop.
Just weeks after opening in 2009, Studios on the Park co-hosted the inaugural Festival of the Arts, and since that day, they have worked to ensure that the Central Coast community and its visitors continue to have access to the visual arts.
Recent efforts include collaborative special events, multimedia classes and workshops, fine art exhibitions, and the Kids Art Smart program which serves over 1,000 local schoolchildren. Through these and other efforts, Studios on the Park continues to fulfill their mission of making the creative process available to the public while becoming a strong cultural anchor to the downtown and a destination for tourists and art enthusiasts.
