National Baby Food Festival

This event is held the third week in July in Fremont, home to the Gerber Products Company and known as the baby food capital of the world. Family fun is the festival theme, with unusual events such as a baby crawl and baby food cook-off to keep participants smiling. Other attractions include carnival rides and nationally-known musical entertainment.
