    Event Description:
    The Artichoke Festival is a one-of-a kind event that combines 60 years of long-standing community tradition. It began in 1959 as a harvest festival to celebrate the iconic artichoke and the region known as the “Artichoke Center of the World.” Over the years, the festival has become a primary source of funding for local non-profit groups that depend upon a successful event for their viability. The Festival’s 5K Beach Run will help to expand on its promise to use the artichoke to raise money for the surrounding communities of Castroville, California. Hosted by the Castroville Artichoke Food & Wine Festival this event will benefit charitable and educational nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations within the County of Monterey, such as:
    • Local School Sports & Education Programs
    • Animal Rehabilitation and Community Education Programs
    • Cancer Support Services
    • Community Programs that serve Seniors and At-Risk Youth
    • Food Insecurity in our Local Community
    • Health and Nutrition Education Programs
    The Castroville Artichoke Festival’s 5K Beach Run, to be held May 18, 2019 in Monterey at the Monterey Tides.
