Yuma Date Festival 2016

Events

The 2016 Yuma Date Festival is coming up. The City of Yuma moved it to January 30th this year. In years past the event took place in November. I would imagine it was due to other popular event's that also take place in November, and January their is a lull leading up to another popular event that takes place in Yuma...Midnight at the Oasis.

For any date lovers out there looking for a fun field event we highly suggest you attend - even if you don't love dates...it's a great time. From free samples to exhibition, this event will really give you a new perspective on the work it takes to harvest a medjool dates. They even have popular local chefs put on cooking demonstrations that will bring your imagination to life. The way these guys are able to utilize a medjool date is really fascinating. 

This years festival takes place in downtown Yuma and will start at 9:00am and close at 5:00pm.

Here is a brief video on last years event:
