Kerman is once again planning for the 6th Annual Kerman Almond Festival, May 7, 2022 at Kerckhoff Park, and will be celebrating local agricutural and the almond industry in Kerman and the Central Valley.
Things To Do at the Kerman Almond Festival
This is the third year of Kerman’s almond-themed festivities, and you won’t want to miss it. Not only are there bounce houses, there’s a baking contest and a beer booth. Basically, there’s something for every member of the family at this event.
One of the main features of this festival is the 5K Scholarship Fun Walk/Run. If you’re interested, you can sign up here. There’s even a kids run if you want to make it a family thing. Every participant gets a shirt and proceeds go to an agriculture scholarship fund. Cost for this is $25 for the walk/run and $10 for the kids run.
Additionally, there’s an agriculture-themed photography contest, so grab your camera and find a field. First prize is the honor of having your photo featured in the Sebastian Corp phone book, so don’t miss out on the opportunity.
However, if you’d rather just eat festival food and admire photographs, that’s a viable option too. Or you might start dancing thanks to live music from the Marie Wilson Band and the Twilighters.
Of course, no Almond Festival would be complete without reptiles. Reptile Ron will be in attendance, and, to double down on the animal excitement, so will the Host of Heavens Petting Zoo. Add pony rides and wine tasting, and you’re all set to go nuts celebrating all things almond.
