The Santa Barbara Fermentation Festival is produced by Cultivate Events and showcases local and regional experts on the history, benefits and how-tos of fermented foods. This all-ages experiential one-day festival celebrates the art of making traditionally fermented foods and beverages such as kimchi, kombucha, kefir, pickles, beer, sauerkraut, wine, cider, cultured vegetables, and sourdough bread, and empowers attendees to make these foods at home.
2014 Theme: Science of the Gut
The 2014 Santa Barbara Fermentation Festival offers an array of talks, hands-on demonstrations, a DIY Pickle Station, a Bacteria Buddy Passport Program for the kids, and a Farm-to-Bar Happy Hour. Not to mention dozens of fermented food and beverage artisans, supplies and educators.
