To stay up-to-date on what’s happening with Colony Days, visit its website and sign up for the mailing list. The website will be updated with current information and an email sent out if anything changes. Presently, the committee is continuing to take vendor applications, parade entries and selling tickets for Tent City After Dark. Vendor fees and concert tickets will be refunded if those parts end up being canceled.
Atascadero Colony Days is a grassroots community run and funded event that depends on sponsorships and donations. Because of the financial difficulties our community is feeling due to the shelter at home orders, the committee is also feeling the financial difficulty. We are asking for anyone who is able to donate even $5 to put on this year’s event. Go to the event’s website and click on DONATE.
