Medjool Date

Festival 2013

Saturday 16th November 2013 - Historic Downtown Yuma

How Do They Do That?

We have to ascend our glorious Medjool Date palms at least 15 times per year - and our largest palms are over 50 feet tall. How do we do that?


The Bard Valley Medjool Date Growers Association has developed specialist machinery to make the job simpler and safer for our teams of dedicated workers. Come see the latest technology and realize just how far we have progressed since the days of the humble - and not very safe - ladder.

Equipment demonstrations and talks situated on the 300 block.


9:00 AM - 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
