San Joaquin Asparagus Festival
A spear of asparagus can be fried whole, used to flavor asparagus ice cream, or drawn cartoon-style and turned into a festival mascot. At the family-friendly San Joaquin Asparagus Festival, the versatile vegetable appears in all three forms. The asparagus dishes can be found in Asparagus Alley, whereas the mascot decorates the festival site, and just might make a cameo in the parade.
The festival makes sense for San Joaquin County, an agriculture hub, but even there, asparagus alone isn't a weekend's worth of entertainment. Hence the myriad other types of fun. For kids, there's a petting zoo and a Kid Zone packed with carnival games. Adults can browse a car show or sample the latest craft beers and wines.
