“One of the many things that sets KAABOO Del Mar apart from other festival experiences is the ability to engage all of the senses in an elevated and engaging way,” says KAABOOChief Brand + Marketing Officer Jason Felts “Year after year, our PALATE program continues to push the envelope, taking the culinary experience to another level and we are thrilled to welcome such incredible talent from Southern California and across the country.”
Over the years music festivals have become more than about the music – it’s an experience. Foodies arrive in droves just as eager as the music enthusiasts and for good reason. They’re delivering an impressive culinary lineup to match, check out the talent roster HERE!
In addition to the savory and unique bites on site, Blue Moon will also be introducing a specialty KAABREW pour – Tangerillo IPA, which will be all the way from the brewery in RiNo. The Blue Moon Grove Getaway is one-of-a-kind experience. Think a lush escape where you can relax under the shade of massive Valencia orange trees, snap pics in front of our instagrammable wall, and sip one of our three refreshing brews that will be served.
