Lemon Festival


The Lemon Festival has been a celebration of Chula Vista’s heritage for over 20 years. In 2017 the annual festival was Sunday, August 6th from 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.

Overflowing with interactive features and giveaways from community partners, this annual tradition is more refreshing than the fresh-squeezed lemonade offered in abundance.

THANK YOU to those who attended, participated, and contributed to our sweet event! Until the next one…
