Hayward Zucchini Festival 2016


I went to Hayward Zucchini Festival and really enjoyed myself. It has been held in my town for 34 years and is one of most attended festivals around:








You can see that it was like any other festival I attend but this one is to honor the great Zucchini:









So cheers to the zucchini and I can't wait for next year,

  2. I love to go to fairs like this! I was on the fence about zucchini until Hubby started growing them and now I am a believer! I have also come to terms with calling it a courgette.

  3. That one zucchini in particular is large enough to use as a weapon!

  6. Looks like a fun festival. I love zucchini - it's so versatile. I just posted a recipe for low carb muffins made with zucchini. Delicious!

  7. A festival all about my favorite veggie? (I mean, how can I not love it when I use it everything from zoodles to homemade granola to smoothies?) Talk about heaven!

    I grew a huge zucchini one year, and stuffed it( middle eastern style, with meat, pine nuts, and spices.
    Happy WW!

  13. This is one of the things that I am so confused when I got here. I call this Zucchini and in here they call it courgette! This is a very very interesting event!

  17. I grow zucchini in my garden every year. It practically takes over the whole garden. They grow huge, and I'm still trying to perfect the zucchini bread. I haven't found the right recipe yet that I favor, but I'm workin' on it. ~hehehehehe~

  18. This is interesting. We don't have these kinds of festivals, specific to a food or a type of produce, where I live. I'm not too fond of zucchini, but I do like it in some of the ways it's prepared. I would eat the zucchini bread.

  25. I love zucchini, and so does our dog Lindy. I don't have to bother cooking it for Lindy...just wash and slice and she's ready to eat as much as possible.
    Just this week we had fried zucchini...delicious!

  26. That is very cool. I love zucchini (although we call them courgettes here - I wonder why that is?) my Dad grows hundreds of them and we have to find inventive ways to eat them.
