The Goleta Lemon Festival, put on by the South Coast Chamber of Commerce, is back and will be here before you know it! Come on down to Girsh Park Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25 for some good old fashioned Goleta fun. The jam-packed family-friendly weekend includes, live music, a variety of entertainment, the Goleta Fall Classic Car and Street Rod Show, “Safety Street,” arts and crafts vendors, and the “zest” food and drink in town. Those ready to “squeeze” the day will want to make sure to participate in the ever-popular pie-eating contest.
In between the fresh lemonade and delicious lemon desserts, make sure you stop by the City booth area and say “hello”! Both the Community Relations team and Goleta Valley Library staff will be at the festival to provide you with the latest information and hand out free prizes.
If you are looking to show off your Goleta spirit at the event, you can purchase a commemorative City of Goleta 20-Year Birthday shirt ahead of time at the Goleta Valley Historical Society Museum Store while supplies last. The Museum Store is located at 304 N. Los Carneros Road. Store hours are Saturday and Sunday 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. and by appointment. T-Shirts are $25 and mugs are $10. This specialty merchandise is a great gift for anyone who loves the Good Land. Once the merchandise is sold, there are no plans to purchase more, so we encourage you to get your gear before its gone.
Having fun will be “easy peasy lemon squeezy” for families at one of the Goodland’s greatest family festivals!
