Mission San Jose’s sixth annual Olive Festival

About 2,000 visitors gathered behind the Old Mission San Jose Museum amid a backdrop of historic trees on Saturday, for Mission San Jose’s sixth annual Olive Festival.

Although the crowd this year was smaller than previous festivals, co-organizer Bob Tavares said the day went very well.

“As always the vendors were very popular, and the music everyone loves music,” he said.

Also popular once again were the tri-tip sandwiches and various olive-made products.

This year marked the second year the festival has incorporated a wine tasting feature, which Tavares said was so popular there was a glass shortage.

Next year’s festival will return Oct. 4.
