Brentwood & East Contra Costa Spring 2017 Events & Activities


Springtime in Brentwood is our favorite season. We are finally over the seemingly colder Winter season, but we’re not yet in the heat of Summer.  Indeed, Brentwood is beautiful, and even more so in April and May when flowers abound, and the cherries, strawberries, and other fruits from the area’s many farms are getting ripe for the picking.


There are also many events and activities in the area that are happening during these months, and will continue on through the Summer months.  Here are a few that we have gathered so far, and we will continue to update this list as we get the details on more events.  If you have an event in the area that’s not mentioned below, please make sure you send it to us at our Brentwood Events Page.



Brentwood’s Spring Season is unique and never complete without cherry-picking.  The cherry-picking season usually starts in May, but the exact weeks can vary by year and by farm depending on the weather and fruit availability.  Aside from cherries, our farms also have strawberries, blackberries, peaches, plums, and other fruits during this time.  We will update as the season progresses and we hear more about when this year’s fruit picking season is going to be, but in the meantime, check out our Cherry Picking page.


This year’s Brentwood Farmers Market season started back on March 4, 2017, and will go on every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon until mid-November.  It is held on First Street and Oak in Downtown Brentwood.
