Mark your calendars
Many changes are in store for the 2023 Jubilee. One major change is the event venue. We will be having the event at the Kingsburg Historical Park (see more details below).
There will be other fresh produce available for purchase besides stone fruit. There will be interesting and educational demonstrations throughout the event including docents from the Kingsburg Historical Park available to give tours.
Ticket Sales end on Friday June 23rd. Pre-purchased tickets are $8.00. You will receive an e-ticket by email. We suggest printing it out when you receive it and keeping it handy for the event entry. You will also have the option of pre-purchasing paper bags to be picked up at the entry gate.
There will be a limited number of discount tickets for pre-sales available soon. The venue has a maximum capacity, so getting tickets ahead is recommended.
$10 per person at the gate. Children 12 and under free with paid adult. Fruit bags will be available for purchase for $5 or $10. Pre-purchased bags must be picked up at the entry gate.
Those who are familiar with the past Jubilees remember there was fruit tasting and bags to purchase and fill with your favorite varieties of stone fruit. We are hoping to include tasting this year in some form according to best food handling practices.
The Organic Stone Fruit Jubilee is celebrating its 15th year! Previous events featured fruit tasting and buying of fresh produce from local small farms that specialize in growing delicious varieties of nectarines, peaches, plums, pluots, apriums, and apricots. Kid-friendly activities as well as food and beverage booths make this an educational and fun event. Many of the favorites will return with the addition of air-conditioned spaces available to escape the summer heat.
This will be the fifteenth year since the Organic Stone Fruit Jubilee was first held at the Mokichi Okada Association (MOA) Oasis Garden near Clovis, CA. Many of the original participating growers have retired. Also there are less and less small stone fruit growers available to participate, hence the addition of other produce. The Kingsburg Historical Park offers a nearby location for many of the participating farmers. You can check it out at Kingsburg Historical Park.
Many familiar faces and some new ones will be participating this year. We will provide grower profiles on occasion to keep you informed.
