Fall Fests Coming Up in Monterey County

Monterey County Events

Enjoy fall in Monterey County

Fall officially begins this Friday. If you are looking for an event to enjoy this fall, look no further than this list for Monterey County! As your Monterey County real estate agent, I enjoy helping Central Coast residents fill up their social calendars with fun things to do and see in the area. This is also true for those who have recently relocated to the Central Coast and are looking to get to know the area and meet others.

Keep these upcoming Monterey County events in mind when planning out your fall season:

  • Monterey Beach Sportsfest takes place Sept. 23-24 at Del Monte Beach. Whether you participate or watch, it’s a full two days of sports and learning about the significance of health! There will be open-water swims, beach volleyball, water polo, kayak racing, kids’ events and an expo full of vendors.
  • The California International Airshow is coming up Sept. 30 through Oct. 1 at Salinas Municipal Airport. From aeronautical acrobats and military demos, to aircrafts on display, flyovers and more, it’s an airshow that’ll awe. Gates open at 9 a.m. and the show begins at 11 each day.
  • Indulge in local cuisine at the Taste of Carmel on Oct. 5! Head to Carmel Mission and taste foods from more than 30 local restaurants. They’ll be serving up appetizers, main courses and desserts, and you can wash it all down with wines from 20 area vineyards.
  • The Butterfly Parade and Bazaar takes place in Pacific Grove on Oct. 7. Each fall, Monarch butterflies return to the Central Coast region for the winter season. Celebrate this migration with a parade full of kids in adorable costumes, followed by a bazaar, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • If you love movies and art, you’ll love the Carmel International Film Festival taking place from Oct. 18 to Oct. 22. Enjoy five full days of independent films complemented by art, music, lecture series and more. Events will take place at venues throughout Carmel-by-the-Sea, but mostly at Sunset Cultural Center.

Enjoy these fests, and as the fall season continues, November will bring the Big Sur Food & Wine Festival, the Half Marathon on Monterey Bay and so much more. Fun never ends in the Central Coast region of California!

What to Do at California Mid-State Fair

California Mid-State Fair

California Mid-State Fair

The California Mid-State Fair begins next week! It runs from July 19 through July 30 this year at the Paso Robles Event Center. In our last blog post, we shared who will be performing at the Fair this year, from famous acts that require an extra ticket, to local bands that are included with Fair admission.

As your Central Coast real estate agent, I’d like to fill you in on what else you can look forward to at the California Mid-State Fair this year, aside from live music! There is so much to do there, it’s hard to keep track sometimes. Here’s a general synopsis of the days to come in Paso Robles.

Entertainment options at the Fair extend way beyond live music! Attend the 98.1 KJUG Barndance, sign your babies up for the Diaper Dash, fall in love with the Farm Fresh Kids, let your kids create art at Kids Art Smart, let off steam at the Fun Zone, enter one of the Public Contests, sign up for the Tractor Races, meet farm animals at the Petting Zoo, and so much more.

The Carnival is a huge attraction for kids and families, and this year, tickets for the carnival rides are going to cost about half as much as they have in past years! There are rides for kids and teens of all ages. From the Carousel, Frog Hopper and Farm Bounce, to the Big Splash water ride, Cliff Hanger and House of Zombies, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Demonstrations are a great way to learn something new while getting involved and meeting others with the same passions as you. Kids will enjoy the Bugs, Slugs & Spiders demo. Adults may enjoy the Cake Decorating demo. You can also sit back and watch the Strongest Man & Woman contest, square dancers, zoo animals, youth performances and more.

Livestock shows and contests are a big part of California Mid-State Fair! There are events taking place throughout the week and half, such as poultry shows, rabbit shows, sheep dog trials, dog show, dairy goat show, swine showmanship and many others. Show off your livestock or just attend and admire everyone else’s!

Let’s not forget all of the amazing food you can find at the Fair as well! New vendors this year include Crave Mini Donuts, Top Notch Concessions, The Hurricane Kitchen, The Gingerbread Shop, Pon’s Chinese Food, Baja Lobster Dogs and William’s Concessions. Bring your appetite and stay hydrated!

More information about all of the activities and schedule of events can be found on the Fair website, along with special admission days. As your Central Coast real estate agent, I hope you and your family get to head to the Fair at least once to enjoy it! It’s a great example of old-fashioned fun that the Central Coast still thrives on.

One of the highlights of living in the Central Coast region of California is the annual California Mid-State Fair that is held annually during the summer season! This year’s fair will run July 19-30 in Paso Robles. While the fair encompasses a wide variety of events and activities, one of the biggest highlights is the lineup of musical performers.
