Join the Commission at the 31st Annual California Avocado Festival
California avocado growers are encouraged to join the California Avocado Commission and celebrate “30 years of peace, love and guacamole” at the free 31st Annual California Avocado Festival. The three-day festival will take place in Carpinteria, California from October 6 – 8 and is expected to attract more than 110,000 California avocado fans.
The festival is not only the state’s largest free music festival, it also plays host to the world’s largest vat of guacamole. The venue includes an AvoEXPO tent, the largest avocado contest, a diverse food venue featuring California avocado dishes, a commercial marketplace, arts and crafts, 75 music acts on four stages and a kid-friendly sector. As always, the festival will feature the fan-favorite guacamole contest and avocado auction.
As a sponsor of the California Avocado Festival, the Commission staff and grower volunteers will be on hand to provide attendees with new California avocado recipes, avocado cutters and to answer fans’ questions concerning the California avocado growing process.
