Art After Dark Paso is a wine and art stroll through the art galleries and art-filled wine tasting rooms of historic downtown Paso Robles. The next event is Sept. 6. Touted locally as a great way to start a Saturday night, it offers attendees a casual, fun introduction to the fantastic artists who reside and ply their trade in Paso Robles, served up with a healthy dose of Paso Robles wines.
The art on display covers a wide array of media and styles and highlights our locally famous artists and up and coming stars. Wineries provide live music and tasting specials.
