"We thought the Arts and Olive Festival at Cañada College was a wonderful event.  The community support was amazing.  We were especially pleased that the proceeds help fund student scholarships.  We'll be back next year!"

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you back next year to the 18th Annual Arts & Olive Festival at Cañada College, to be held on Sunday, October 2, 2016. Unfortunately, the festival will be on a one year hiatus and will not be held in 2015. The Arts & Olive Festival is a celebration with a rustic olive theme. The event takes place on the hilltop campus of Cañada College, featuring more than 350 olive trees. Cañada is located in the Woodside-Redwood City area of the Peninsula, Farm Hill Blvd. exit off of Hwy 280.

This event was established to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of this community college; it has grown to support Cañada’s scholarship fund, generate student interest in local history, volunteerism and community outreach.

The opportunities for positive visibility through sponsorship involvement in this year’s event are varied and extensive. Sponsorship opportunities are available through corporate and business level association with the event or through the underwriting of specific components or activities. Both ensure that your association with the Arts & Olive Festival will be an effective marketing strategy for your company this year and in the future. Sponsor agreements will be administrated by the San Mateo County Community Colleges Foundation.
