ExpeditionFoodieAZ.com Best Fresh-Picked Fare Festival

Medjool dates are known for being larger, softer and sweeter than your average date. And because the candy-like fruits thrive in Yuma's fertile soil and year-round sun, local farmers come out every year to celebrate Medjools with food, drinks and date-cooking demonstrations.

Featuring Local Date Fruit Companies, Live Celebrity Chef Food Demonstrations, Community Performances, Tasty Treats & Eats, Unique Business & Craft Vendors, our $5  All Access Kids Zone, and a live concert featuring Last Call!
