Fourth of July Drive-Thru barbecue

The Atascadero Fourth of July Freedom Bluegrass Festival set for 2020 has been canceled due to state regulations in response to COVID-19. The annual event has been a fundraiser for Atascadero Colony Days’ annual event in October celebrating the community.

The Atascadero Colony Days Committee will host a drive-through barbecue dinner on the Fourth of July from noon to 4 p.m. at a location yet to be determined. The barbecue dinner will be chicken or tri-tip with salad, bread and dessert for four. The cost for the chicken dinner is $40 and $50 for the tri-tip dinner. Dinners are being pre-sold on Atascadero Colony Days’ website, LEARN MORE HERE


We are in the process of planning the 2020 event planned for Oct. 2 and 3. As many people and businesses are feeling stressed and are having financial difficulties during COVID-19, are feeling that too as our event relies on community donations and sponsorships. If you are able, we’d appreciate any size donation. Click on the button below to make a donation. If you’d like to be a part of planning or volunteering day-of, please email
