The Artichoke Festival


Thank you to all for attending the 61st Annual Artichoke Festival!

After more than a year of being forced to shelter-in-place and remain socially distant, it was great to welcome guests and volunteers once again to the Artichoke Festival at the Monterey County Fairgrounds, in Monterey, California on July 24-25, 2021.

With your wonderful support, we were once again able to celebrate this beautiful region that we proudly call “the Artichoke Center of the World!” We hope you’re looking forward to 2022 as much as we are!

Spread those good artichoke-y feels!
