On Sunday, March 13, the best of Capay Valley will be showcased at the Capay Valley Almond Festival. The festival began in 1915 and is the only five-town event in Northern California.
Esparto, Capay, Brooks, Guinda and Rumsey will host this year’s festival, which features entertainment, crafts, food and fun for all ages.
The almond blossoms provide a colorful display that decorates the landscape across the Capay Valley each year, ornamenting the highways and country roads that wind through the region’s fertile green hills.
Almonds are a $2 billion industry, and more than 6,000 growers devote an estimated 530,000 acres in the Central Valley to almonds, California’s largest tree nut crop, according to the Yolo County Visitors Bureau.
