Lucero Olive Oil’s Second Annual Spring Bloom Event

Grab your picnic baskets and join the Lucero Team for a day at the Mill.

Lucero Olive Oil proudly announces our Second Annual Spring Bloom Event on Saturday, May 12th; from 12:00-5:00pm. Come and celebrate the olive bloom with a picnic and a tour of the groves. Visit with friends and family and learn more about the olive bloom.

In addition to tours of a century old olive grove there will be wine tasting, guided olive oil tastings and mill tours, a kid zone and the picnic. The grove tours will begin at the mill, travel down to the grove then return to the Lucero Mill at the end of the tour. Local artisan food vendors will be there offering their wares to supplement your picnic baskets’ spread to share with friends and family. A local live band will fill the air with music throughout the day.

Please join us to celebrate the bloom and our rich community history in olives.
