Make a nutty hat for The Nutty Hat Contest!
Kids or adults, get your nutty creative juices flowing. Decorate a hat with a nutty theme - must include Almonds, Pistachios or Walnuts.
Bring your nutty hat to the festival and meet at 2:30 p.m. inside the front entrance (Stramler Park) gate for a parade of Nutty Hats. Then at 3p.m. on the Gazebo Stage the Nutty Hats will be judged and prizes awarded. Nutty fun for all those nutty noggins out there.
The finalists in the Nutty Recipe Contest - sponsored by KBAK and Urners - have been selected. Check out the finalists here.
Congratulations to Kelly Wonderly, winner of the first Kern County Nut Festival Poster contest. Her winning poster will be printed and sold as the festival's first commemorative poster.
