Paso Robles is holding its 16th annual Olive Festival at the city’s downtown city park today.

The free event celebrates the city’s burgeoning olive oil industry and features olive producers from throughout the country.

A variety of oil vendors both locally and out-of-county are featuring their products along with free olive oil tasting.

Attendees will also get a chance to socialize with downtown merchants, olive oil producers and industry experts during the Olive Oil Awards.

“Over the last 15 years, the popularity of this event has proved that people want to learn more about the health benefits and culinary creativity of olives and olive oil, and that a festival makes it fun for the whole family,” said Norma Moye, Executive Director of the Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association’s Olive Festival committee.

There will also be music, olive oil ice cream and activities for kids.
