• Asparagus Festival - Stockton, California

      This annual event celebrating one of California's most important crops features entertainment, carnival games and rides, children's activities, a parade, a petting zoo, and a Wild West gun fighting show. And of course there's food, including fried asparagus and asparagus ice cream. Formerly held for many years at the Stockton waterfront, the festival has been saved from extinction by The Nocetti Group, which has moved it to a spacious new location at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds.

      If you go:
      Held in April. Arrive early, as the festival is well attended. Some people prefer to park off-site rather than deal with potential traffic jams at the fairgrounds. And be prepared for heat.
