The California Avocado Festival has announced that the festival planned for this October at Linden Field will be postponed to 2022. The announcement states: “We are committed to providing a family friendly free festival to the public and we were faced with challenges again this year that did not make it feasible or safe to move forward. This decision was made due to capacity concerns, the changing nature of COVID-19, and to minimize the potential risk to members of our community as well as the several thousand out of town visitors that attend the event each year.”
Festival organizers say they will continue holding pop-up shops with festival merchandise at the Carpinteria Farmers Market and smaller events and acknowledgements in other locations. Details will be announced soon.
