“Through his writing, (John) Steinbeck was able to capture the beauty and cultural richness of the Salinas Valley and Monterey Peninsula for the entire world to enjoy, a vibrant paradise that still shines even during these unprecedented times.”
On August 1st and 2nd The National Steinbeck Center will honor Steinbeck with “Steinbeck Country United”, a two-day virtual and interactive festival in which vendors, exhibitors, and artists will be able to share with a global audience their products and services through an online marketplace.
→ Mainstage Presentations
→ Interactive Breakout Sessions
→ A Virtual Marketplace
→ Renowned Steinbeck Scholars and Panelists
→ World-Class Musical Entertainment
→ International Cultural Performances
With the anticipation of the continuing strict mobility guidelines and limited access to public places, particularly restaurants and retail stores, the “Steinbeck Country United” virtual festival comes at the ideal time to create a much-needed bridge between a global audience and the businesses, non-profits, and cultural organizations that make the Monterey Peninsula and Salinas Valley the land of bounty and beauty.
DATES: Saturday, August 1st and Sunday, August 2nd
TIME: 8:00am to 11:00pm
