Celebrate California Avocados at the 13th Annual Avocado and Margarita Festival
California avocado growers are encouraged to join California avocado fans at the 13th Annual Avocado and Margarita Festival held on the waterfront in Morro Bay. The California Avocado Commission is a proud sponsor of the event and Commission staff will be on hand to share California avocado branded items and recipes, as well as answer questions from attendees. The festival — which features live music, family-friendly activities and a wide range of California avocado dishes — will take place Saturday, September 7 from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
The event will feature a California avocado-centric menu, including Grilled Avocados Stuffed with BBQ Tri-Tip or Albacore, Fudgy Pudgy Avocado Pops, Smoked Avocados and Avocado Cheese Tortellini, as well as a number of specialty margaritas. For the first time in the event’s history, a special blended avocado margarita will be available.
Children can explore the "Grom Zone," which includes a musical petting zoo, yoga, art projects and the Avocado Strong Arm contest. Local bands will perform live music throughout the day and attendees will have the opportunity to win a one-year supply of California avocados.
Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the gate and can be purchased at avomargfest.com. Proceeds from the festival are donated to local beneficiary groups. Since 2015, the festival has donated more than $50,000 to Morro Bay non-profits.
