Mission San Jose Festival celebrates California olives

By Eleni Economides,

Homer called it liquid gold — and this Saturday, the grounds of Mission San Jose will be reveling in it.

California olive oil and olives will be honored during the Mission San Jose Chamber of Commerces sixth annual Olive Festival — which drew more than 2,000 people last year, Festival Co-Chair Sherri McGinnis said.

This event brings a sense of community — its intimate and people love it, McGinnis said.

The festival, which takes place on the olive tree-filled grounds behind the Mission San Jose museum, will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Most of the olives and olive oil featured at the event are harvested from Livermore to Napa.

The free event will feature arts, crafts and games for children as well as food, live entertainment and, of course, plenty of olives and olive oil for sale and for tastings.
