Jelly Belly Candy Palooza

Join Fairfield's Jelly Belly Candy Company this weekend (Sept. 26 and 27) for a fun and delicious celebration for the entire family.

Jelly Belly's annual Candy Palooza features all types of sugars and sweets as well as fun and games for the entire family.

Enjoy live performances throughout the weekend on the Jelly Belly stage, located outside at the front of the visitors center. In addition to the carnival rides and games, there will be a zip line, pony rides and other fun activities for children and adults, as well as multiple food vendors and a beer tent. Inside the visitor's center, guests can enjoy a variety of samples as well as the Wine and Chocolate Experience on the second floor. Admission is free both days and so is parking! Some attractions, including the carnival rides, will require a separate fee.

The Jelly Belly Visitor Center will be modifying its daily tours in expectation of the larger crowds attending the Candy Palooza event.

Tours will be self-guided from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hats will be available at the entrance of the factory and tour guides will be on hand at different stops to answer questions. Because there is no production in the factory on weekends, video monitors are used to show DVD presentations of the different steps of the candy making process.
