Lemon Festival


The Lemon Festival has been celebrating Chula Vista’s heritage for over 20 years. This year, 2017, the annual festival was Sunday, August 6th between 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Once a year, The Third Avenue Village Association closes Third Avenue to traffic and opens the street to hundreds of vendor booths and over 45,000 attendees to rejoice in the juicy jubilee.

The Lemon Festival includes a variety of lemon-infused activities, live bands, sour contests, a kid’s fun zone, a craft beer garden and hundreds of festive booths.

The Festival Fun Zone, located at F Street, includes: bungee rides, a rock wall, and more delight thrill seekers of all ages. Overflowing with interactive features and giveaways from community partners, this annual tradition is more refreshing than the fresh-squeezed lemonade offered in abundance.

For adults with zest for something stronger than lemonade, Memorial Park hosts the Lemon Festival Craft Beer Garden featuring local craft breweries and a variety of flavors from Premier Sponsor Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
