Olive Festival

Join us for the 15th Annual Sonoma Valley Olive Season

Put some sparkle in your spirit with a visit to Sonoma Valley this winter season. In January our annual Olive Season lights up the Valley with a month-long celebration as we toast all things olive.

Celebrating the Season of the Olive

Only 45 minutes north of San Francisco, Sonoma is the most-down-to-earth slice of heaven around, its lush farmlands, rolling vineyards and historic towns lost in a time all their own. Given our Mediterranean climate and rich agricultural roots, our culinary and winemaking legacy, our bohemian artists and small artisan food producers, we can’t think of a better place to “all hail the olive.” In this celebratory thirteenth year, authenticity, history, and community underscore the Sonoma Valley Olive Season. The vibrant heart of old Sonoma--the historic Mission, the Sonoma Barracks and tree-lined Plaza--provides a central backdrop for key Olive Season events. For more than a century, local olive and grape harvests have been blessed and celebrated in this location, and we’re happy to carry on the tradition. Read more
