During Pixie Month, you won’t be surprised to see neighbors and friends gather at Friend’s Ranch, an enormous family-owned property that grows Ojai’s famously flavorful little tangerines. Buy one or two bags and relish the citrusy tang in the air.
 
Every year, the Ojai Valley Chamber of Commerce offers a thrilling garden tour as a one-day fundraising event through five private gardens in and around Ojai. You can also enjoy a fun night outdoors with food trucks and adventure-laden short films at Mountainfilm on Tour or embark on a self-guided tour through the private studios of Ojai’s accomplished artists.
