ATASCADERO — The City of Atascadero usually starts gearing up for their annual Father-Daughter Sweetheart Dance this time of year. The dance is a very special event for many little girls in the community, when their fathers, grandfathers, or anyone with a wonderful young lady in their life is invited to spend a themed, semi-formal evening of fun together. The evening includes dancing to great music, tasty snacks, terrific door prizes, and more! 

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 Regional Stay-at-Home order in place at this time, the 17th Annual Father-Daughter Sweetheart Dance has been postponed until 2022. The City looks forward to bringing this wonderful event back in 2022. So, for now, SAVE THE DATE!

  • Friday, Feb. 4, for ages 11 & under
  • Saturday, Feb. 5, for ages 12 & over

With each of the City’s traditional events during this time of the pandemic, they have strived to be as creative as possible in order to continue to offer fun activities for the community to enjoy in some manner, such as virtually. However, the Father-Daughter Dance event is much more fun live, and in person, so the decision has been made that it would be best to be postponed.

The City thanks the community for understanding and promises to be back with fantastic events just as soon as possible.
