Pear Festival Week is finally here! Falling on the last Saturday in September, the annual Kelseyville Pear Festival is a celebration of one of Lake County’s most well known crops. Kicking off the fun is the sold out Farm-to-Fork Pear Fest Dinner on Friday night on Main Street in Kelseyville, followed by the Pear Parade on Saturday morning (9am), and the street festival featuring food vendors, artisans, live music, and all things pear—ice cream, cocktails, desserts, savory items, and of course the pie eating contest! For a schedule of all the activities and timing, follow their social media feed. See you out there! 🍐 ♥️
