Like salsa? The public will get its fill Saturday, Aug. 30, when El Dorado Hills Natural Farms hosts its first salsa festival to benefit the Food Bank of El Dorado County.

All are invited to taste and vote on the best salsa from area restaurants, including Relish, Cascada, Chili’s, Casa Ramos, Jimboy’s Tacos, Mexquite, Adanberto’s, Freshmex Express, La Placita and Snooty Frog.

The voting is easy. Tickets may be purchased for $1 to sample each salsa or $10 to taste them all. The restaurant with the most tickets at the end of the evening wins.

EDH Natural Farms will also offer you-pick produce tours and guests will get a chance to  feed the chickens, walk the herb garden and more. Make your own homemade salsa by purchasing salsa boxes for $10.

Artisans and vendors will be at the festival selling hand-crafted goods and other local farmers will sell their produce. Island of Black and White will perform its popular rock, reggae and blues-inspired music from 5 to 8 p.m. Hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks will be available for purchase.

“This festival is yet another exciting way to introduce farm fresh produce to kids, to explore the benefits of all-natural farming and how to support local farms and charitable organizations within our community,” said co-owner Doug Hus. “We are excited to partner with so many quality restaurants in the area wanting to compete in this first salsa festival. The public will get to decide the best tasting salsa and the Food Bank of El Dorado County will benefit from the proceeds as well as public awareness of (its) year-round mission to help feed the hungry.”

The salsa festival is Sat., Aug. 30 from 4 to 8 p.m. Admission and parking are free.

El Dorado Hills Natural Farms is located at 1941 Old Bass Lake Road (at Highway 50 and Bass Lake Road.) For more information call (916) 719-0543.
