Moraga Pear Festival
The annual Moraga Pear Festival will be held on the last Saturday in September. This event features live music, food, children's activities, pear recipe contest, and sale of pear pies.
One section of the pear orchards still stands at the corner of Canyon Road and Camino Pablo. This acre of 100 year old pear trees is the site of a pear harvest every August.
The Moraga Park Foundation organizes the harvest and donates the pears to the county food bank.
Every year Moraga donates about 10,000 pounds of pears were harvested by volunteers and donated to the Contra Costa and Solano Counties Food Bank.
Due to popular demand we have made the Moraga Pear Festival Recipe Contest Winners recipe book available online. PDF
