Winters, California - Food, Arts & Earthquake Celebrations
 

Pictured above is nearby Davis, California

 

Winters, California in Yolo County is located just 13 to 14 miles from Vacaville, Dixon and Davis, three cities that enjoy more traffic from their vantage points near Highway 80 between San Francisco and Sacramento. Highway 80 veers off toward Sacramento just a few miles away from Winters, which is located on Highway 505, causing this little town to miss some of those road-stoppers who've learned that there are many hotels, restaurants and shopping centers to enjoy outside of Sacramento.

 

Winters is undeterred and continues to enjoy its quaint, small town charm. Celebrating community is what this city is all about.  From a very patriotic 4th of July Fireworks show to Youthday (held on last Saturday in April) for the youngsters and the kid in us all, Winters citizens like to celebrate their rich culture. If you think they take life too seriously, you don't know about the one-of-a-kind Earthquake Street Festival which celebrates the great earthquake of 1892. This unique gathering celebrates the Harvest Festival and Farmer's Market in one event that is real kick.  If you've never attended an Earthquake Festival, Winters, California is your best bet. Earthquake Street Festival is usually held the third Friday in August. Faults in the Winters area were responsible for the 1892 also were responsible for damage to building in nearby Vacaville. 

 

Not far from Winters is Lake Berryessa, the largest lake in Napa County, California with parts of the lake in Yolo County as well. The lake is formed by the Monticello Dam, which provides water and hydroelectricity to the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. The lake has a seaplane landing area that is open to the public.

Winters has enjoyed a bounty of harvests for over 100 years growing crops such as wheat, walnuts, almonds, grains and fresh fruits and tomatoes. Several fantastic farms with over 100-years experience in commercial farming allow visitors to purchase dried and fresh fruits. You can even order online.

In addition to great produce and foods, Winters' roots also extend to the palette and pen.  Once home to world-renown cartoonist, Robert Crumb, the Pennsylvania born artist and illustrator lived in Winters with wife cartoonist wife Aline Kominsky. They dynamic settle down in 1978 in Winters and started a family. Crumb continued to succeed and gain fame, all while living Winters. Known for Zap Comix, Fritz the Cat and Keep on Truckin', Crumb is recognized for the distinctive style of his drawings and his critical, satirical, subversive view of the American mainstream.

Crumb was a founder of the underground comics movement and is regarded as its most prominent figure. Though one of the most celebrated of comic book artists, Crumb's entire career has unfolded outside the mainstream comic book publishing industry. One of his most recognized works is the Keep On Truckin’ drawing, which became widely distributed fixture of pop-culture in the 1970's. There are estimated to be over two million copies of Zap Comix alone, in print. In 1993 Crumb left California and moved to France to embark on a new chapter in his career.

Perhaps the soil and rich foods make culls great art in Winters. No one knows for certain, but for a city whose population is less than 25,000, Winters has more than its share of artists. Home to a first Saturday (of every month) Art Walk, approximately a dozen art galleries participate in this public event, displaying and selling works in a variety of media such as ceramics, glass, oils and watercolors.
