Morro Bay Avocado and Margarita Fest Will Offer More Avocado Dishes
Due to popular request, the organizers of the 12th Annual Avocado and Margarita Street Festival have expanded the footprint of the event and added numerous new food vendors to provide attendees with more space and more California avocado dishes to enjoy while listening to live music. The event, which takes place September 8 in Morro Bay, California, will be comprised primarily of food and beverage vendors and will include a family-friendly “Grom Zone”, bands, performance art, raffles, a variety of contests, the opportunity to win a one-year supply of California avocados and to participate in creating an art mural.
California avocado dishes will include:
- Seafood stuffed avocados
- Smoked avocado
- Avocado stuffed with bacon, eggs and cheese
- Mac and cheese with pulled pork and spicy avocado crème
- Avocado chocolate mousse cups
- Soft and chewy double chocolate avocado cookies
- Fresh donuts with avocado drizzle
As a sponsor of the event, the California Avocado Commission will be on hand to share new California avocado recipes, growing advice and California avocado-branded giveaways. Growers are encouraged to attend the festival and stop by the booth to meet other California avocado growers and Commission staff. Tickets are $7; children 10 and under are free.
On the evening prior to the festival, California avocado fans can enjoy a farm-to-table meal featuring their favorite fruit at the beautiful, rustic Packing Shed. The Taste of the Grove event features local dishes by some of the finest chefs in the area. Tickets are limited and the cost is $75 and includes all food and drink.
