The 26th Annual Lemon Festival Returns To Downtown Chula Vista

The 26th Annual Lemon Festival is set to take place on Saturday, August 12th, completely transforming Downtown Chula Vista’s Third Avenue into a lemon-filled oasis.

In addition to the many lemon-themed bites and sips, attendees will be treated to two stages of live music, photo set ups, a lemon cook-off competition, arts and crafts vendors, and a kid’s zone for families.

“We’re very excited to welcome back the annual festival on Third Avenue,” said Dominic Li Mandri, District Manager of the Downtown Chula Vista Association. “Last year was the first Lemon Festival post-pandemic, and it was a huge success, attracting over tens of thousands of attendees. It’s amazing to see the community come out and show their love for Downtown Chula Vista and celebrate its history! We can’t wait to see everyone this year.”

Cook-off and costume contest

In addition to this year’s Lemon Cook-Off, the Downtown Chula Vista Association will be hosting their very own lemon-themed costume contest! Attendees of the festival are encouraged to get creative and have fun with their costume design. The bigger, the better!

Hommage to CV’s agricultural history

Although most of the lemon orchards have now been replaced with urban development, the memory of Chula Vista’s lemon-filled past lives on through local businesses and events, and some trees can even be seen sprouting in resident’s lawns! The annual Lemon Festival is an amazing way to remember and pay homage to the community’s agricultural history.
