Chop it, steam it, bake it, fry it—there really isn’t much that can’t be done to zucchini. What better way to honor the multifaceted summer vegetable than to throw a party for it, and heck, why not throw in some antiques as well? The Zucchini Festival & Antique Show
appears this weekend and, boy, is it packed with the zest of life. Zucchini lovers can view a veggie garnishing and carving demo with SRJC chef Lauren Helvajian, enter the Biggest Zucchini Contest and race zucchini cars. Antique lovers can view showcased treasures from pre-1975 and have their own antiques viewed by certified appraiser Phil Eagle. Live music, food and a Kidz Corral round it out on Sunday, Aug. 11, at Windsor Certified Farmers Market. 701 McClelland Drive, Windsor. Free. 9am. 707.838.5947.
