Chico, Calif. - The weather sould be perfect for the 12th Annual California Nut Festival on Saturday, April 21st.  It takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the historic Patrick Ranch Museum along the Midway south of Chico.

The popular event is hosted by the Butte Agriculture Foundation , with a focus on locally grown and produced foods and beverages from the North Valley.  And nuts take center stage of course!

The festival features delicious food, as well as sampling of local wine, beer and cider.   There are nut-inspired cooking demonstrations, live musical entertainment on two outdoor stages, a wonderful art show featuring talented local artists.

There will also be a"Nutty Chef Competition" where three local chefs compete on stage for bragging rights and a trophy . The chefs will be provided with a number of ingredients from vendors -- like olive oil, nuts, honey, spices, sauces, beer and wine -- plus they will be able to bring some "secret" or special ingredients of their own.

To date this event has raised $140,000 for the Patrick Ranch Museum to help preserve and interpret the agricultural history of the Sacramento Valley.

Tickets are available at participating TriCounties Bank locations. General admission tickets are $30 in advance, $35 the day of the event. It's free for children six and under. For more information visit www.californianutfestival.com.
