May 31: Larkspur Food and Flower Festival

It’s a food and flower lover’s delight when the Larkspur Food and Flower Festival takes over Magnolia Avenue to celebrate its 20th year. Nothing spells springtime quite like the largest gathering of nosegays, bouquets and vase arrangements on one street in Marin, where flowers of all manner are displayed, celebrated and for sale. Gourmet offerings for the palate will be offered from the Ward Street Cafe, the Yankee Pier, the Left Bank, the Lark Creek Inn, Back Yard BBQ and the Melting Pot. A kids’ area with the usual face painting and jumpy house will placate the young-uns while the Marin Community Chorus, the James Moseley Band, Rubber Souldiers and Steve Lucky and the Rhumba Bums provide danceable musical entertainment. It’s all going down on Sunday, May 31, on Magnolia Avenue between Ward and King streets, downtown Larkspur. 11am–6pm. Free. 415.924.3808.Gabe Meline
