Downtown Main Street is ‘Where Everyone Comes Together’,  and Where Everyone Stays Well Together!

PASO ROBLES, CA – March 17, 2020. Downtown Paso Robles retail businesses, hotels, offices, restaurants, residents and cultural institutions are adjusting to Coronavirus-related disruptions. Our foremost concern is for the health, safety and prosperity of all these individuals. We continue to advocate for them, share relevant information when helpful and assist with economic recovery.

At Paso Robles Downtown Main Street Association, we have taken precautions to limit exposure by implementing a remote work policy for our team, while continuing to deliver on our core mission to revitalize downtown Paso Robles through Restoration, Beautification and Preservation programs. As these programs directly impact the entire community, Main Street has important updates to share.

All spring Main Street membership mixers, and events have been postponed until further notice. This includes the following events: Hop to It, The Vintage Sidecar Rendezvous & Treasure Faire and the Paso Robles Olive Festival. As health and safety guidance dictates, we will update all residents, partners, volunteers, members, sponsors and vendors on new event dates, locations, logistics and sponsorship opportunities.
