The California Avocado Festival is calling for original art submissions from community members for a chance to be chosen as the official festival poster and T-shirt design.

This year’s Avofest theme is “Back to the Roots.” Organizers hope the event will inspire a sense of Carpinteria returning to a pre-Covid-19 time when community members could joyfully gather. 

The deadline to submit artwork is Friday, July 30. For more information, visit
