We have a saying, ‘What’s old is new again’ to describe our business of resurrecting old used wine barrels and making them into beautiful decorative barrels that in some ways, are better than new. The Paso Robles Main Street Association is doing something similar every fall with the Golden Oak Honey Festival. The event is currently the fourth Saturday of October at the Downtown City Park, running from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
The Autumn festival isn’t actually new as they’ve operated the Golden Oak Festival for many years; but, this time they’ve added some charm and fun to the theme: honey. That appears to have sweetened the event up and will include several bee and honey oriented activities and displays as the center of attention. There will free tastings of bee products and a wide assortment of other honey related goods and merchandise.
Built around being a family affair, the Golden Oak Honey Festival will have the same elements as most downtown park events have with antiques, collectibles, arts, crafts and food, to go along with bee keeping seminars and other associated exhibits. Of course, don’t forget there will be wine barrels and half wine barrels.
With the colors of fall beginning to show, this will be a great time to check out what’s going on in Paso and remember, there are wine-tasting rooms surrounding the park.
The festival is free and so is the parking. See you there and don’t forget to come by and visit Paso Wine Barrels – we’ll be on the corner of 12th and Spring.
