Artichoke Festival

Date: May 30, 2020

Location: 2004 Fairgrounds Rd Monterey, CA 93940

Join us in celebrating 61 years of artichokes — the official vegetable of California and Monterey County. On May 30 & 31, 2020 the Artichoke Festival will be at the beautiful Monterey County Fair & Events Center on the central coast of California. Come out and enjoy great weather and fun for the whole family — featuring local chef demonstrations, a wine & beer tasting garden, artichoke-inspired delicious food, a Kids Zone, fantastic musical entertainment, an AGRO Art competition, arts & crafts booths, our famous farmer’s market, artichoke farm tours, an invitational soccer tournament, and fun exhibits and contests celebrating this year's Festival theme: "Field to Festival."

For many years, the Artichoke Festival has been dedicated to informing and exciting festival attendees about the unique qualities of artichokes including farming, harvesting, and preparation, to demonstrate how the artichoke industry has influenced the history of Monterey County. As an event produced by a 501(c)(3) organization, the purpose remains the same with an emphasis on giving back to the local community. Proceeds from the festival are used to support 501(c)(3) community organizations and activities that align with our festival's mission.
