Harvest festivals are a tradition all over the world, but Baja California has infused its festivities with cultural and culinary activities that are unrivaled. The combination of these elements offers guests the true color and flavor of Mexico and can only be found in Ensenada.
The optimal harvest season in Baja California begins in August and the month showcases many celebrations and activities. The vineyards of the region begin picking the mature grapes when the sugar content has reached the level which will produce wine with a perfect balance of flavor and alcohol. The harvest festivals have become a symbol in town and for over 22 years have transformed the region into a place of activities that everyone is sure to enjoy. The three week festival features food and wine tasting, art exhibitions, cooking contests and many other Mexican heritage events.
