Local teens compete for the Almond Queen crown. The menu for the dinner features produce from local farms and is prepared by members of the Western Yolo Grange. After dinner, contestants take the stage and deliver a speech prepared on a topic such as: "You are describing the Almond Festival to someone who has never been, but you can only use 5 words. Which 5 words would you use and how would those words showcase this Capay Valley tradition."
Tickets for the dinner can be purchased at Esparto Ace Hardware, New Reflections Salon in Esparto, and the Guinda Corner Store. They are $25/adult and $15/children.
The Rumsey Improvement Association is the primary sponsor of this event.
