Artichoke Festival
Celebrating our 63rd year, the Artichoke Festival celebrates the State Vegetable of California, the Artichoke! Have them steamed, fried, grilled, in burritos, tacos, soup, pasta, and more. The Artichoke Festival includes a Farmers Market, Wine Tasting, Chef Demos, Live Music, a Quilt Contest, Ag Education by local farmers, and more artichoke‑centric contests and kid's activities, all on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula. In the past decade, we've given back $300,000 to neighboring nonprofit organizations in our community. You'll love our small‑town vibe, great Central Coast weather, and the unique flavors & fun, focused on our favorite bud.
