California Avocado Festivals - Why you need to experience one
03 / 05 / 2014
Of all the annual California Festivals, the avocado festivals are our favorite (of course). We've even heard of folks flying in from other countries to express their avocado love here in the Golden State. “Children, teens and adults come from everywhere,” says California Avocado grower Bill Coy.
What can we say, Californians love avocados and avocados thrive in California! We celebrate them properly... and for good reason: they're delicious.
“The California Avocado festivals are a great way for avocado lovers to learn about the versatility of the avocado, as well as the growing regions,” says California Avocado grower Bradley Miles. “People come back every year to see the farms as they drive in, get recipes and enjoy good food and music.”
Each regional avocado festival in the state celebrates uniquely, but they all share their undying, ever-increasing adoration for the California Avocado.

Wherever you are in the world, you are invited to these avocado festivals. “The festivals get better and better every year" says Coy. "That's because people have a love affair with avocados… everybody loves them. And that’s the word you hear them say when they describe how they feel about avocados – love.”
