The San Benito Olive Festival (SBOF) is pleased to announce that its fourth annual fresh culinary event will be now at the charming San Benito County Historical Park in Tres PInos. The non-profit SBOF has joined forces with the San Benito County Historical Park team to plan a celebration of the area's agricultural history, local harvest and culinary delights for Saturday, Oct. 14, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Originally the festival was planned to be at Brigantino Park in Hollister.  "The SBOF Board would like to thank the City of Hollister and staff for all their time, patience and encouragement. We sincerely appreciate everyone's kind efforts," said Kathina Szeto, a board member of the popular foodie festival.

San Benito Olive Festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Its mission is to build awareness of the region's world-class culinary agriculture, premier artisans and return all net proceeds to help support community causes.

The welcoming event invites foodies and families to enjoy artisanal foods and drink, celebrity chef cooking demos, live music, hands-on crafts and more. Tickets are available in Hollister at Postal Graphics, 1760 Airline Highway, and San Benito Bene, 615-B San Benito Street, as well as online at Eventbrite–San Benito Olive Festival.
