Meringue, Ale and Savory Bites to Add Tang to Lemon Festival

For its 24th year, the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Lemon Festival will provide an abundance of delicious lemon foods from a variety of vendors.

Presented by MarBorg Industries, the festival takes place Saturday, Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Girsh Park in Goleta.


It’s the only time of year that you can enjoy Anna’s Bakery’s hand-crafted, homemade lemon meringue pie and mouth-watering Goleta-famous lemon bars.

Quench your sun-drenched thirst with lemon ale, specially brewed across the street at the Hollister Brewing Company. 

If that’s not enough you can satisfy your lemon craving with lemon shaved ice, lemon gelato and sugar spun clouds of lemon cotton candy; plus barrels of good old fashion lemonade — all in one place.

For those who have a taste bud for something savory, there will be Philly cheese steaks, tamales, tri-tip, pulled pork and more. Local favorite Georgia’s Smokehouse will have lunch and breakfast items available, including their famous ribs.

Mark your calendar for the Lemon Festival and don’t miss the exciting activities, live entertainment and mouthwatering food.

Join us with family and friends to celebrate the 24th year of the Goleta Lemon Festival at Girsh Park. For more information on the Lemon Festival, visit www.LemonFestival.com or call the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce at 805.967.2500.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
