North Coast Festivals – 2021 / 2022

There’s no shortage food and beverage events on the North Coast – seafood receives a well-deserved, special shoutout here and various libation-focused fêtes are also well represented – but the area also hosts a bounty of festivals which celebrate inedible human pleasures like music, gardening and art. If those are your interest areas, you may want to contact one of the friendly California North Coast visitor centers to inquire about what’s scheduled during your visit.

Oyster Festival in Arcata, CAAnd, if you haven’t already read it, do check out our North Coast travel ideas article. This is an amazing and gorgeous part of California, and there’s A LOT to enjoy here!

This North Coast festival list is arranged by month, and you can easily determine what’s happening during your visit. For each entry on the list, you’ll find the date(s) it’s scheduled to occur, plus a link to a website that provides additional details.

Also, please note that we strongly recommend you make note of the website for future reference. It’s wise to check again and verify the event details closer to the actual date, especially during these “things-can-change-quickly” pandemic times.

The list includes dates for 2022 festivals as well as some with 2021 dates. ***Events for which a 2022 date is not yet available are marked with a triple-asterisk.*** These are often annual events and held around the same time every year, so if a 2021 event looks interesting you may want to click through to see if the organizer’s website now provides the new date.

If you’re still in the planning stage, you may just want to browse the list to see if any of the festivals especially appeal to you. Alternatively, if your travel dates are already set, you can use these handy jump links to advance to a specific month’s events quickly:
