The California Avocado Festival will be postponed to 2022, which the organizers attributed to the fluctuating nature of Covid-19.
“It is with heavy hearts that the California Avocado Festival would like to announce that our event currently scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021, is postponed until 2022,” the board of directors said in a press release released through the city of Carpinteria.
The festival had been scheduled for an in-person event on Saturday, Oct. 2. According to the release, the decision to postpone was made due to capacity concerns and the uncertainty surrounding Covid-19.
The famed festival typically draws several thousand out-of-town visitors.
The festival will still hold a pop-up show at the Farmer’s Market, and some smaller events, to be announced.
