Squeeze some fun into your summer at the 21st annual Lemon Festival presented by Third Avenue Village Association in Chula Vista’s original neighborhood on Sunday, August 6.
Sweet sour summer fun will fill Third Avenue from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at no cost to the community to celebrate Chula Vista’s historic reign as the lemon capital of the world. Third Avenue will close to traffic and open to hundreds of vendor booths welcoming over 35,000 eager attendees rejoicing in this juicy jubilee. Sport your brightest yellow outfit and enjoy lemon-infused activities, live bands, sour contests, a kid’s fun zone, a craft beer garden, and hundreds of festive booths.
Lemonade Bandstand in Memorial Park will be rocking with live bands from various genres including: Alter Ego, Dubbest, Fanny and the Atta Boys, and Kannan Road. The Citrus Stage at E Street will feature tangy tunes, local artistry, and our lemon contests. Attendees will have the opportunity to compete for glory and prizes in the Lemon Pie Eating, Lemon Peeling and Largest Lemon contests. All ages are welcome to participate. Festival guests interested in the contests will be directed to sign up at the Citrus Stage.
The Festival Fun Zone located at F Street where bungee rides, a rock wall, and more will delight thrill seekers of all ages. Overflowing with interactive features and giveaways from community partners, this over 20-year tradition is more refreshing than the fresh-squeezed lemonade offered in abundance.
The Lemon Festival Craft Beer Garden, in Memorial Park, will quench the thirst of adults with zest for something stronger than lemonade, featuring craft breweries participating in the #southbayuprising movement such as: Chula Vista Brewery, Bay Bridge Brewing, Novo Brazil, Thr3e Punk Ales, Groundswell, and a variety of flavors from Premier Sponsor Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
The 21st Lemon Festival gives crates of gratitude to their new and returning sponsors Scripps Health, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, and Naked Juice.
