California Events & Festivals Calendar

imgs
April is an exciting month in California as summer begins to kick in with beer & wine festivals, music festivals and summer concert series in many municipalities. Annual county fairs (58) as well as rodeos and Western cowboy celebrations are much anticipated events. Kicking off the food frenzy are strawberry and avocado festivals, plus some other foods and culinary events.
