The awesome avocado gets its own tribute at the 22nd Annual California Avocado Festival. For over two decades, the Festival has been celebrating the avocado and its menuing possibilities! It's all about that creamy nutty avocado flavor starring as the entree at every food booth featuring everything from ice cream, shrimp cocktail, salads, smoothies, desserts, a menu of international cuisine a'la avocado, and a whole lot of guacamole. All this food sampling is done to a non-stop sound extravaganza featuring performances by over 60 bands presenting a musical menu of rock-a moli tunes on three stages. The kids block party is right next door with games and prizes, bouncers, creative art booths and kid friendly cuisine. Shop till you drop at over sixty craft creators and purveyors booths that line the downtown marketplace! Sample the fabulous food, dance to the music and take home something green from Carpinteria's biggest outdoor party of the year!
