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 winetastings and tours of local vineyards. A youth piano competition, recital and student cultural exchange with Poland additionally honor Paderewski's legacy. We invite you to join us at the 2016 Paderewski Festival in Paso Robles!
The Paderewski Festival is partnering with Festival Mozaic for a spectacular concert next spring. Join us for "The WinterMezzo Coda: The Chopin Project".
