Top Food, Beer, & Wine Festivals

A real-life cornucopia, California is one of the world’s most productive agricultural regions—for example, we’re by far the country’s top grower of avocados and strawberries. Unofficially, the state is also the national leader in food festivals. That’s because Californians not only excel at growing and preparing food, they love to celebrate it, too. Attend events throughout the year that honor everything from Dungeness crab to tamales, artichokes, and dates. And—of course—plenty of California wine and craft beer, too. Watch cooking demonstrations by star chefs, enjoy live entertainment, and sample surprising specialty foods. Garlic ice cream, anyone?
