1770 - 2020: An Event You Won't Want to Miss! Monterey Turns 250 on June 3rd - The City of Monterey has planned for this “never again” occasion for at least the past three years. Celebrations for several unique, featured, and year-long events to take place throughout the year were suddenly halted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
