The Free Inspired Home, Garden, & Gourmet Expo is a great opportunity to meet with over 100 local home, garden, and remodeling experts, all while tasting gourmet food and wine!

PASO ROBLES, CA (January 23, 2018) – After a year of paid parking to park in the lot across for the event at the Paso Robles Event Center, The Inspired Home, Garden and Gourmet Expo brings back Free Parking for all of the attendees! “The Paso Robles Event Center is currently raising funds for facility improvements and last year had paid parking for all public events at the fairgrounds. This year they let us sponsor the parking lot so that we can continue to offer free parking to our attendees!” says Kelley Braga, Event Coordinator.
