This Sunday is for the dads – new dads, grand-dads, dog dads... join us this weekend in Paso Robles as we celebrate! See below for Father's Day weekend events, activities, gift ideas and more.
It's All Fun and Games
For the Competitive Dads:
Make your dad feel like a real winner with a day of healthy family competition. Paso's wineries and vineyards make the perfect setting for family-friendly lawn games like disc golf, bocce ball and more. Castoro Cellars is a favorite for its live music year-round, Yoga Brunch classes, 18 hole disc golf course, and the annual Whale Rock Music & Arts Festival every September. Riverstar Vineyards is a family-owned and operated vineyard and winery that knows how to do family activities right. Tour the vineyard while the kids play lawn games like corn hole or horseshoes. They offer everything from picnics and art displays, to concerts and winemaker dinners. Dark Star Cellars is another popular choice for its laid back atmosphere and delicious wines. Sip wine on the patio or try axe throwing while the younger bunch explore the observation beehive, meet the winery cats and chickens, or engage in open-mic night!

Enjoy an afternoon tasting or pairing while you're there, or pack your own picnic and take it to Paso's downtown city park — Paso Market Walk has everything you need from cheese & charcuterie boxes at LouLou Cheese Girl, to a selection of local bottled wines at Paso Wine Merchant and Father's Day themed sweet-treats at Just Baked.
Savor A Day on the Green
For the Sporty Dads:
Swing like pro at the most elite golf clubs and courses in Paso! Picture perfect golf weather, and Paso provides it with over 286 days of sun annually and temperatures averaging a high of 76ºF. Enjoy exceptional year-round playing conditions in a charming, laid-back atmosphere — ideal for a range of experience levels. Whether you're looking for a family activity or new setting for your annual match, the Paso Robles Golf Club will exceed all expectations. This pristine course has quite the history, and after a recent renovation by Mike Rawister this once exclusive club is now open to the public. Enjoy a day gracing the greens and then head to the on-side Deed's Bar and Grill (Mike's grandkids lovingly nicknamed him "Deed") for an upscale snack.
Hop Around a Brewery Tour
For the Beer-loving Dads:
Paso Robles may be known for its wine snobs, but we also welcome craft beer connoisseurs with open arms and iced cold, full-to-the-brim glasses. If your father loves nothing more than a specialty brew and a good, basement-to-brewery story, you've come to the right place. Home to world-renowned Firestone Walker Brewery (recently rated among the top 10 best breweries in the world) and their popular 805 ale (one of the top 10 best-selling craft beers in the country) it should come with no surprise that Paso's beer scene is hoping'. And yet, our craft beers and breweries are still very much a hidden gem. Come take a father-son or father-daughter tour of the downtown or Tin City — Paso's small warehouse district home to key players in our game-changing beverage scene.
Join a Community of Cowboys and Surfers
For the Adventurous Dads:
So your dad is a story teller, always sharing tall tales about the times he did this and that and got away with it (but just barely!) Put his retired inner adventurer to the test with one of Paso's most exciting wine country adventures. Here we're not just about sipping wine in the tasting room, we're a community of cowboys and grape farmers who like to get our hands dirty. From seasonal grape stomps and grape to glass tour experiences, to Jeep vineyard tours and helicopter tastings or ziplines— there's an adventure for every level of adventurer.
Located on the Pacific Coast, just 30 minutes from some of California's best beaches, our locals like to say you can catch a wave in the morning and make your way to a wine tasting in Paso by lunchtime. Add a sunset horseback ride through Wine Country to your evening itinerary and you have a day of adventure booked from start to finish. Then unpack your boots to dance and drink till the sun comes up at Pine Street Saloon the historic bar known to be frequented by outlaws back in the day.
Set Up Camp at Cava Robles
For the Old School Dads:
Set up camp and stay in style ~ the old-fashioned way ~ with a camper, a set of cards and lots of quality time. Take him back to his roots and enjoy the simple things like morning walks in nature, dinner on the grill and a much needed break from a busy cell phone. Cava Robles RV Resort is the perfect place to make memories of a lifetime with Dad. This inspiring wine country setting offers much more than beautiful views and convenient resort amenities. This top rated, highly awarded lodging property is the ultimate destination for vacationers and campers alike. Whether you plan to bring your own RV or rent a cottage villa, you'll enjoy access to the community pools, spa, fire pits, lawn games, wellness center, trails, and dog parks. Spend the weekend wine tasting, exploring and watching outdoor movies like the good old days.
