From Santa Cruz Clam Chowder Cook-off Feb.23-24, 2019 at the Beach Boardwalk to Fire & Ice Chili Cook-off and Craft Beer Festival Feb.23, 2019 in Corona, the weekend offers just enough spice to keep you warm should the weather be cold, much like your frosty beer mug.

If you’re looking to savor the flavor of a steamy chowder, there’s no finer beach than Santa Cruz. Set to the backdrop of happy screams from the Giant Dipper Roller Coaster, be sure to ride first then eat.

Another flavor-savor experience is trackside in Arcadia at Winner’s Circle Chili Cook-off Feb.23, where chili tastings, beers and horse racing go together well at Santa Anita Racetrack.

For guilty pleasures head for the final weekend of the National Date Festival in Indio. In addition to date foods and dishes, the fairway is filled with fattening concoctions ranging from fried vegetables, desserts and meats, to sweets of every size, shape and calorie count.

Almond Blossom Festival Feb.22-24 is well known for its food and fun, but another great blossom adventure is Sanger Blossom Trail Bus Tour Feb.23-24.

Crab Feeds & Feasts abound and people tend to stuff themselves at all-you-can-eat affairs that many of these events tout on Feb.23:
