About Us

Since 1959, the Monterey Peninsula has come together to celebrate California's official state vegetable. California's artichoke history begins in 1922 when the first artichoke shoots were planted in Castroville. The annual Castroville Artichoke Festival began in 1959 as a harvest festival to celebrate the iconic artichoke.
