Register Early!

Space for some of the talks and tours is limited; register as early as possible to ensure you can attend your first choice of talks and tours!

CRFG members’ registration price is $85. Use coupons code “MEMBER“, which recognizes your email address on file with CRFG. Please note: All CRFG members are required to have membership with the national CRFG organization to qualify for the reduced price; chapter membership alone is not sufficient.

Nonmembers’ registration price is $115, which includes the cost of an annual CRFG membership (with the national organization).

Optional Events

The Friday reception/social and Saturday dinner are optional, and an enjoyable way to connect with your fellow fruit lovers. We encourage you to join us and your fellow fruit growers for some tasty food. Register for these events along with your festival tickets to ensure your reservation. You must register for the Friday social and/or Saturday dinner events simultaneously with your main registration; they cannot be added to a later order.

Friday social: L.A. County Arboretum in Arcadia, at 5:30pm.
We’ll enjoy a variety of finger foods, small plates, and beverages, and a chance to meet CRFG members from all over. If you haven’t yet picked up your registration packet, they’ll be available at the social.

Saturday dinner: Arcadia Community Center, at 6:00pm.
Join us for a keynote talk/presentation and dinner after a day of great speakers. The dinner includes grilled Mediterranean chicken, beef kabobs (both gluten-free), or vegetable kabobs with tofu (vegetarian) served with vegetable rice, Greek salad, hummus and pita bread, tabouleh, rolls and butter, and beverages.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have any allergies to specific foods, please indicate your allergies in the Order Notes section when you check out, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.


Registration Tips

Each person must register separately and buy a ticket for the Festival to attend the optional events.

  • You must register for the conference itself (admission and lunch) in order for your place to be held for speakers and for tours.
  • If you prefer to sign up for speakers or tours at a later time rather than when you register, you can create a new order.
  • Orders for tours and talks have no cost and do not go through Square. Simply “check out” from the page that shows your virtual shopping cart. After the order is placed, you will receive an e-mail showing your additional order.
  • We regret that once placed, orders cannot be re-opened and modified onlineTo change an order already placed, use the “contact us” link so we can make your changes.


Payment: You can pay online with a credit card, or you can mail us a check after registering. Note that registration will not be finalized until the check arrives and is processed.
