Board of Directors

Atascadero Colony Days began in 1974 by Atascadero resident Maggie Vandergon (who still serves on the committee’s board of directors). The event began as a way to bring the community together for a day of fun with a parade. The celebration expanded to include festivities in the park and then in 2003, the historic recreation of 1916 Colony Days was added. In 2015, a fundraiser concert, Tent City After Dark was added.

The community event now takes place over two days the weekend of the first Saturday of October and is put on a volunteer group of community members. The board of directors meets the second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. at Hope Chest Emporium in Atascadero. Quarterly in March, June, September and December, the entire committee meets at the Community Church of Atascadero, 5850 Rosario Ave., at 6 p.m.
