Here are the best 5 events to attend in California:
Its official name is the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, but everyone knows it simply as “Coachella,” and it has done quite a lot to obtain that legendary one name status. Coachella is the music festival to end all music festivals with an eclectic lineup of big-name and up-and-coming artists and bands that will bring out the big guns to the joy of a packed Empire Polo Club ground that includes celebrities, hipsters, and everyone in-between. It’s a party like no other, and If you haven’t been to Coachella, you’re missing out on one of the biggest parties on the planet, bar none. Apr. 14-16 and Apr. 21-23.
Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival
The Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival, then known as the Rancho California Balloon and Wine Festival, was started in 1983 by Walt Darren, a commercial airline pilot, and avid balloonist and by Evelyn Harker a veteran event organizer and fundraiser. Evelyn immediately suggested it might “fly” even better if it involved some of the area’s other natural attractions such as wine tasting, culinary presentations, and entertainment. With an enormous task ahead, the assistance of two other community-minded individuals, Sherry Prysock and Mike Flaherty was enlisted, and Evelyn became the first event chairperson. The seed money was provided by Kaiser Development Company and sponsors came from the local community giving what they could with many contributions consisting of in-kind services and products. June 1-3.
Monterey Car Week & Concours D’Elegance
A tradition going back over half a century, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is where the world’s collector cars meet and compete. Only the 200 best collector cars in the world roll onto the legendary 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links, and only a handful of those will receive official recognition for style, technical merit, and historical accuracy.
This special automotive week is full of exciting events, auto shows, rallies, concours and car auctions that end on Sunday at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. August 18 – 26.
Joshua Tree Music Festival
Believe it or not, there are quite of few music festival diehards that look over this massive festival in the Southern California desert. But in truth, the Joshua Tree Music Festival is one of the best in California, if not the nation. This festival is unique in that it’s split into two editions, one in the spring and the other in the fall. Although most will make it to at least one of the two, the Joshua Tree Music Festival is best experienced when you attend both editions. May 12 -15 and Oct. 6 – 9.
California Roots Music and Arts Festival, Monterey
To enjoy the roots of California’s legendary music scene, this is the festival that you need to attend. The California Roots Music and Arts Festival is a three-day affair held every May at the Monterey Fairgrounds that showcases some of the best bands and artists from around the Golden State. Though the festival does attract nationally-known artists, this festival is primarily geared to the local talent, which is what makes this festival so awesome. May 27-29.
