AVOCADO FESTIVAL The idea of the California Avocado Festival began in 1986.

Did you know that when the Aztec ruler Moctezuma presented a gift to Spanish explorer Cortez in 1519, he included avocados along with gold, silver, and jewels? The inhabitants of Carpenteria, California, in the USA, commemorate this fact every year with an event completely centered on the avocado. In fact, if you mention any other fruit or vegetable at this annual October event, the people will throw you into the World's Largest Bowl of Guacamole. Why avocados? Well, Santa Barbara County is the third largest avocado producer in North America. Why in October? Because statistics show that October is one of the sunniest months of the year with the least amount of rainfall. The Avocado Festival has become one of the largest and funniest festivals in California with three days of fabulous food, the greatest music, and vast safe family fun. The Avocado Festival is free for all to enter. Besides lots of chips and dip, visitors can take part in some friendly "avotivities." Of course there's a competition for the best guacamole and various other recipes (ice cream and brownies), but the biggest event is the Best Dressed Avocado.
