California Nut Festival

With a focus on locally grown and produced foods and beverages from the North Valley, the 2015 California Nut Festival is scheduled for Saturday, April 18, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The popular culinary event takes place outdoors on the historic grounds of the Patrick Ranch Museum in Chico, California.

Each year, this crowd-pleasing festival showcases plentiful gourmet food offerings, always-popular wine and beer sampling, nut-inspired cooking demonstrations, live musical entertainment on two outdoor stages, a wonderful art show featuring talented local artists and much more. Presented by the Butte Agriculture Foundation and sponsored by Tri Counties Bank, C.F. Koehnen & Sons, Discovery Homes (a new partner this year) and Farmers Circle members, tickets go on sale March 6 for the 2015 California Nut Festival.

Locally grown tree nuts including almonds, walnuts, pecans and pistachios take center stage throughout the event and during much-anticipated cooking demonstrations. The goal of the vibrant, entertaining and fun annual festival is to celebrate the culinary delights grown and produced in California while paying tribute to the strong farming heritage in Butte County and also providing festival guests with an opportunity to connect with local farmers and growers.
