Situated just outside the Bay Area in Fairfield, the Jelly Belly Visitor Center is a delightful attraction for families of all ages. This is the only place you can see famous Jelly Belly® jelly beans being made on the company’s world renowned factory tour.
Each year, nearly visitors learn how the famed Jelly Belly jelly bean got its name, why it takes up to 14 days to make, and what happens to the billions of beans the company produces each year. Stop by any day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to learn the secrets behind the company’s world-famous candy making on the factory tour.
