Mission San Jose Chamber of Commerce’s Olive Festival will return for its sixth annual run today (Oct. 6).
The event, always on the first Saturday of October, will take place behind the historic Old Mission San Jose Museum starting at 10 a.m.
In addition to food and crafts where olives are the featured ingredient, there will be music. This year’s lineup includes the vintage rock group The Kenyan Band, along with a steel drum band, something new to the festival.
In all, there will be music playing up until the festival ends at 5 p.m.
Returning this year will be tri-tip, linguica sandwiches and a local nursery will also be selling olive trees.
Attendees will have the chance to win gift baskets worth as much as $500 in the Olive Festival raffle. Last year’s event drew about 3,500 guests.
