Support Paso Robles Youth Arts Center and enjoy an evening of music and community

PASO ROBLES — The Paso Robles Youth Arts Center announced the 3rd Annual Backyard Jam Benefit, a community event dedicated to supporting youth arts in the Paso Robles area. Join us on May 31 at The Backyard on Thirteenth in Downtown Paso Robles for an unforgettable evening of music, food, drinks, and fun.

The Backyard Jam Benefit aims to raise funds for the Youth Arts Band and the free Visual & Performing Arts Program, which serves nearly 700 local students aged 5 to 18 annually. With 45 free classes per week in art, theater, music, dance, and creative enrichment, the program provides a platform for young artists to express themselves and nurture their talents.

Prepare to be amazed as the talented band students, joined by Youth Arts Alumni, take the stage to deliver an incredible musical experience. From crowd favorites to their own original compositions, these young musicians are sure to leave you in awe. 

Each ticket includes a meal choice from Roots on Railroad, offering a selection of their top five dishes. The Backyard on Thirteenth donates two draft beers, wines, or non-alcoholic drinks per guest. Indulge in musical performances, desserts, and more surprises throughout the evening.

As seats are limited, they encourage you to reserve your tickets today and to RSVP by May 24.
