Foodies may want to start packing their things for the summer months, as there are plenty of food and wine festivals during this time. One of the best places to visit in the U.S. for these kinds of festivals is California, as the state has ample amounts of wineries and restaurants to contribute to the events. 

The San Jose Mercury News reports that there are a number of festivals going on throughout the summer that last for days in order to truly celebrate the gastronomic wonders that California has to offer. 

For example, those who have a sweet tooth and will be visiting the San Jose area at the end of June may want to check out the Chocolate Extravaganza that will be held on June 25. Revelers can enjoy everything from a chocolate fountain to local musicians. 

Additionally, Santa Cruz County will be holding the California Beer Festival on July 16, which will feature more than 60 craft beers and live bands for people to enjoy during their visit.
