For more than 40 years, each October the Community of Atascadero Celebrates Colony Days and the reenactment of the original Tent City. What is Colony Days? Why is it celebrated? How did Atascadero begin? Who is E.G. Lewis?

Join host Kris Kington Barker as she speaks with organizers of this unique event, guests Nic Mattson, Colony Days Committee Vice Chair and Greg Ravatt, Colony Days participant and Atascadero Historical Society member as they discuss the history of the Atascadero Colony and the importance of this long standing community event.
