North Coast Festivals – 2022 & 2023

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, the hosting city, plus a link to a website that provides additional details.

The list shows the 2022 festival schedule. When added, 2023 dates will be ***noted with a triple asterisk*** to avoid any confusion. Many of these events are held annually and often scheduled to occur around the same time every year, so if a 2022 event looks interesting you may want to click through to see if the organizer’s website now provides the new date. Also, if you plan to attend an event, we strongly recommend that you make note of the website and recheck it closer to the actual 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. (If you’re headed to this far-north California area, you may also want to check out our Shasta-Cascades festival list.)
