The Charles Paddock Zoo


Did you know that we donate some of the proceeds from the Central Coast RESERVE at Atascadero to the Charles Paddock Zoo? 

Every ticket you purchase and every sip you take supports our local Atascadero zoo! In the words of the zoo's tiger, Menderu, this festival will be a roarin' time.
