Festival Location

At the center of the charming city of Paso Robles there is a wonderful park surrounded by fine restaurants, cafes, wine tasting rooms, pubs and even a candy store.  Also, there is a multi-screen movie theater just across the street. There will always be something for the families of the participants of Eroica California to experience.  We look forward to seeing you here!

Our festival will start on Saturday with a bike fair featuring vendors selling cycling goods and other local items. There will also be a world class bicycle Concours d’Elegance judged by the experts. This will be the third Eroica California bicycle concours and we expect to see some amazing bicycles at this show.

Paso Robles Downtown Park was designed around the historical Carnegie Library, built in 1908, it served as a public library from 1908 to 1998.  This library was 1 of 1,689 Carnagie libraries built within the United States, funded by Andrew Carnegie.

Today the park is the cities epicenter, surrounded by a wide array of locally owned boutiques, casual and fine dining restaurants, wineries, art galleries, children’s museum and movie theater.  It also boasts beautiful walkways centered through green grass, a large fountain, a gazebo, huge California Oak trees, and Magnolia trees, including a variety of native flowering gardens.  Annually, the park is host to a variety of wine festivals, summer concerts in the park, many car shows, and now it will also host the festival of Eroica California. The ride of Eroica California will also start from the park.
