Monterey, CA – The California Roots Music and Arts Festival is excited to announce the food and craft vendor lineup for the festival happening on May 26-28, 2017 in Monterey, CA. Now in its eighth year, the festival continues to partner with stellar local food vendors to bring festival goers many dining options including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free choices. The festival will host several craft vendors at the “Art Retreat” zone, sponsored by Integrity Wine, which will be selling clothing, unique artwork, and more. Cali Roots is also proud to support a number of great nonprofit partners this year with an area dedicated to them. View full list of partners here.
Al Coppolo, Vendor Coordinator, enthusiastically states, “We get over 100 submissions that want to be part of the event, but can’t take them all because space is limited. We have criteria including having a variety of vendors that don’t have the same menu.” An exciting new addition is The Green Grocer from Healdsburg, CA, who will be offering an extended selection of all organic gluten free vegan items, which is one of the most requested options at the festival. Equal Exchange Coffee, is a sponsor of the event and provides sustainable coffee, by using coffee beans that are organically grown and farmed locally without using artificial pesticides or herbicides. This ensures that pollution from wastewater and fertilizers is minimized and soil erosion is decreased and native forests are kept intact. A parallel mission to Cali Roots’ impressive greening efforts.
Also, new this year will be an expanded food vendor area near The Bowl stage that will free up pedestrian traffic from one of the main walkways. View the 2017 festival map here for details.
Finally, the festival will feature the return of their own signature beer, Hoppy Roots IPA, an exclusive Session IPA crafted by the festival producers along with the expert Sierra Nevada brewers in 2015.
