The Paderewski Festival

Paderewski Festival in Paso Robles
A Premier Central Coast Music Festival in Paso Robles, California

The Paderewski Festival is a four-day music festival held annually in November celebrating Paso Robles' rich heritage and its most famous resident Ignacy Jan Paderewski - virtuoso pianist, composer, international politician, local landowner, grower and winemaker. Concerts featuring world renown talent, exhibits, lectures,  master classes and film screenings are accompanied by wine tastings and tours of local vineyards. A youth piano competition, recital and student cultural exchange with Poland additionally honor Paderewski's legacy. 

Welcome to the 2021 Paderewski Festival!

Given the good news regarding vaccination levels and statewide opening plans, the Board of Directors for the Paderewski Festival has decided to plan for an in-person Festival this year. Please save the following dates: Friday, November 5 - Sunday, November 7 for your visit in Paso Robles.

  • The Festival will begin with a chamber music concert on Friday, November 5.
  • The Youth Competition winners will be presented at a 4 p.m. recital on Saturday, November 6.
  • the Gal Concert, featuring pianist Kevin Kenner, is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 6.
  • A special event is also planned for Sunday morning, November 7 that will be opened to our Patrons and Friends of Paderewski ticket holders.

Please stay tuned as more details about programs, performers and venues will be shared as soon as they are confirmed. 

After a year of hearing music in virtual spaces, we are looking forward to live music returning to Paso and to interactions with our distinguished audience.

Please be aware that, due to unforeseeable circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, 2021 Paderewski Festival events may be limited or cancelled if local, State or Federal restrictions are reinstated. In this unlikely event, the Board of the Paderewski Festival will do our utmost to communicated with Festival patrons and provide refunds in a timely manner.
