Paso Pops





for PASO POPS second annual concert and fireworks show


The Paderewski Festival in Paso Robles, PASO POPS Organizing Committee and The San Luis Obispo Symphony thank our sponsors and those who attended the inaugural PASO POPS Independence Day celebration on July 2nd.

By all important measures, 2016 PASO POPS was a big success.  We owe a debt of gratitude to the many businesses that contributed services at discounted rates, sponsors that carried the financial load, volunteers who worked hard to make PASO POPS a safe, fun and family-friendly patriotic event, and a very large committee that put nearly a year into the planning of this inaugural event.

We’ve taken note of the issues that came with the large inaugural PASO POPS response, and we are already planning improvements to make next year’s PASO POPS a serious success.

Thank you for your overwhelming support and patience in PASO POPS’ inaugural year. Once plans are finalized for the 2017 event on Saturday, July 1st, our website will be updated and we will contact you again.
