Sonoma Valley Olive Festival

California90 Olives - another month it will be ripe

Sonoma Valley Olive Festival

Celebrating the Season of the Olive

Less than an hours drive north of San Francisco, Sonoma is the most-down-to-earth slice of heaven around, its lush farmlands, rolling vineyards and historic towns lost in a time all their own. Given our Mediterranean climate and rich agricultural roots, our culinary and wine-making legacy, our bohemian artists and small artisan food producers, we can’t think of a better place to “all hail the olive.”

The vibrant heart of old Sonoma–the historic Mission, the Sonoma Barracks and tree-lined Plaza–provides a central backdrop for key Olive Season events. For more than a century, local olive and grape harvests have been blessed and celebrated in this location, and we’re happy to carry on the tradition.

Annual event; two months long, January & February
