Carmel Culinary week 2023

Carmel culinary week
June 2-9


Over the past several years, Carmel-by-the-Sea has been recognized for its rich culinary scene and divine wine region. With more restaurants per capita than any small city in the U.S., we're proud to showcase local flavors and seasonal specials for locals and visitors on a daily basis. This acceleration of food excellence has led us to celebrate California's Restaurant Month with the second annual Carmel-by-the-Sea Culinary Week, "The Art of the Plate." This ten-day celebration will showcase both international and regional flavors by our local chefs and restaurateurs from May 19-31, 2023. More news will be available soon.

Carmel Surfabout

** carmel surfabout **

June 3rd and 4th

Since 1980, once a year, local Monterey County surfers and their families have gathered on the squeaky white sands of Carmel beach for a weekend of friendly surf competition.

The original intention of the surf contest was to create an opportunity for local surfers from otherwise smaller micro surf tribes on the Monterey Peninsula to gather, connect, and enjoy the water together amidst a weekend of friendly but earnest surf competition.
Over time, while always retaining its spirit of local surf competition, the contest has evolved into a family friendly community gathering of all Monterey Peninsula ocean lovers and beach goers. Together, we share a passion of recreating in the waters of the central coast, and for the friendships created along the way.

While new elements have been added and subtracted to the Surfabout throughout the years, the contest centers around three different main competitive categories—Surfing, long boarding, and the long distance paddle.
