The Artichoke Festival
Postponed to June 5-6, 2021
The Artichoke Festival has been a local institution in Monterey County for over 60 years. Without the passionate dedication of our community of volunteers, entertainers, artists, vendors, sponsors and guests alike, we would not be able to give back to the local nonprofit community for whom we target our giving each year.
Unfortunately, we have had to make a heart-wrenching decision. In the face of all that is happening during the global pandemic, and mindful of the imperative safety of our community, the Artichoke Festival Committee has decided to cancel this year’s 2020 event.
But, save this new date! The Artichoke Festival will return on June 5-6, 2021 at the Monterey County Fair & Event Center. We look forward to seeing the happy faces of our guests and volunteers next year, eager to celebrate this beautiful region that we proudly call “the Artichoke Center of the World!”
