As a longtime resident in this community, one thing I can say with pride is how friendly, close knit and supportive everyone is of each other. For new folks coming to town, this is definitely a big draw in addition to the multitude of activities we have for our pleasure. Churches, clubs, nonprofit organizations, and so much more.
At the top of that list is of course, the Avocado Festival...and that event is this coming weekend!
The Avocado Festival is one of the most popular events in all of San Diego County. There is something for all ages, which is demonstrated in the annual attendance of over 100,000 visitors. This festival celebrates Fallbrook’s heritage as an agricultural community.
We see our identity on display in many exhibits, and the avocado and citrus groves are visible to all festival goers as they drive through our rural countryside on their way to Fallbrook.
The central role the avocado plays in our lives is evident in the Guacamole Contest, the Holy Guaca-Moly booths scattered on Main Avenue, the Art of the Avocado Exhibit on display, the Avo 500 children’s car race, and the Best Decorated Avocado Contest.
A wide variety of avocado products are also found all along the festival streets with product and food vendors alike. Do not miss our very own Avocado store...The Spoiled Avocado.
The festival is a fun-filled way to celebrate our heritage and be entertained at the same time. You will find almost any item imaginable to buy at the festival, along with home improvement and business vendors, local farm displays and informational displays featuring local law enforcement.
You will also find music, as well as a beer and wine garden for those looking to relax for a bit. Fine art and demonstrations are to be found at the Artisan Walk on Alvarado. Beautiful handmade arts and crafts are spread throughout the venue. The Fallbrook Avocado Festival is an event not to be missed!
As you are here enjoying the Avocado Festival, it is not uncommon to want to see what homes might be available in our unique and special area. Our community has become very popular because of the small town feel we are so proud to enjoy.
There are several local realtors available to discuss our area and give you a personal tour. When you are downtown, come in and see us in the middle of the festival at 100 N. Main Ave.
