PostHeaderIcon Spring Family Fun at California Nut Festival!

The mission of the California Nut Festival is to help consumers connect with local farmers and learn about the locally grown food available in the North Valley, and support the continued development of the Patrick Ranch Museum to preserve and interpret the agricultural history of the Sacramento Valley, including social, cultural and economic aspects.  The 2011 California Nut Festival is set for April 16, 2011, 11am – 4pm at Patrick Ranch Museum in Chico

Tickets now available – $25/person. Click here to buy yours today!
Tickets for children 7-12 available for $10 at the event.
Children 6 and under are free!

Attendees have the opportunity to elevate their knowledge of culinary skills and locally grown foods, while also gaining a clearer understanding and appreciation of all that goes into producing the food they eat.   Local executive chef, Michael Tuohy, from Grange Restaurant & Bar in downtown Sacramento will be one of the guest chefs participating in cooking demonstrations during this all day event.

Proceeds from the California Nut Festival benefit the Patrick Ranch Museum for the purpose of preserving and interpreting the agricultural history of the Sacramento Valley, including social, cultural and economic aspects.

The California Nut Festival began as a series of events including a blossom tour, spelling bee, book club and chef demonstrations that took place over the course of a two week period, but lacked a single event that brought consumers and local farms together in a meaningful way.

The new California Nut Festival (CNF) is the vision of a group of community volunteers who wanted to bring an upscale food and wine event to the North Valley to celebrate the heritage and provide much needed fundraising to the Patrick Ranch Museum. Kathy Chance, committee chair, states, “We want to increase awareness and consumption of our local products as well as bring people together with the farms in a fun and festive atmosphere.”

What Folks are Saying!

“Perfect infusion of culture, history and taste bud tantalization!” Being still somewhat new not only to the area but to the west coast in general, this was an amazing way to learn more about what Sacramento has to offer and find some new dining options. I would highly recommend this to anyone whether you are a Sacramento transplant, visitor or spent your whole life here. While the hosts and chefs at each restaurant were especially welcoming (Thank you Chef Shannon at Cafe Bernardo!), Ashley our Tour Guide made the experience outstanding! She not only had amazing insight to share on the culture and history of Sacramento, there was a true passion in her eyes as she led us through the tour. I can't wait to try the other tours out and trust me... my local friends from Sacramento have already asked to join.
