While the sounds of music fill the air, so do the smells of international fare wafting from the food stalls on the grounds. Not only do the patrons get their fix from the music, they fill their bellies with everything American from corn on the cob and hot dogs to barbecued ribs and tri-tip. Indian curries can be found, as well as Ghanaian-style salmon and chicken. Desserts range from ice cream and gourmet popsicles to old-fashioned cobbler and strawberry shortcake.

If music and food don't fill you up, then you can shop till you drop at a large variety of stalls featuring jewelry, hats, clothing, African imports and art. Of course, if you need more music, thousands of CDs are also on sale. Indeed, a sensory feast in Monterey.
