Since 1987, celebration of the avocado in the "Avocado Capitol" with contests, entertainment, Main Street shops and street fair. Huge fun with 450 booths, arts, crafts, carnival, beer garde, avocado everything! Free admission, free parking, free shuttle. Music, contests, kids activities. A wide variety of agricultural displays are also found all along the Festival streets. What a fun-filled way to celebrate our heritage and be entertained at the same time. The central role the avocado plays in our lives is evident not only in the all new Avocado Central area, but also in the Guacamole Contest, Holy Guaca-Moly booths, the Art of the Avocado Contest on display, the Avo 500 children’s car race, and the Best Decorated Avocado Contest. A variety of avocado products are also found all along the Festival streets in the product and food vendors alike. It is a fun-filled way to celebrate our heritage and be entertained at the same time!
