There’s no denying that San Diego has always — always — been a hotbed for avocado worship.
Yes, Millennials — San Diegans have been crushing avos well before you were old enough to blow half of your expendable income on avocado toast … But I digress.
There’s no denying that the avo is enjoying a sort of renaissance of late. As evidence, we present a couple of upcoming events that, frankly, we never saw coming — but we’re kind of into it!
First, from June 16 through September 1, The CADO, a mobile experience will pop up at Liberty Station and tickets are on sale now.
Then on June 9, an avocado-themed music festival, Avolution Fest will slide into the Quartyard in San Diego.
Conceptualized and owned by San Diego-based creative agency & boom Unlimited and sponsored by the California Avocado Commission, the 6,700 square-foot photogenic exhibition “examines the nutrient-dense fruit from seed to skin.”
The exhibition will feature seven rooms, formed by 16 custom-built shipping containers, filled with interactive art installations celebrating California’s state fruit.
Liberty Station, South Promenade, is at 2850 Roosevelt Road in San Diego. The exhibition will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
Tickets are $27 and children under 3 years old are free with a paying adult. Discounted tickets are available on Family Wednesdays.
To reserve your tickets and follow along with the progression of the exhibition, visit thecado.co.
This one-day event celebrating all things avocado has live music by Wild Belle, BAYNK and The Young Wild and avocado-inspired art installations and avocado-centric food and drinks.
The event takes place from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 9 at Quartyard, 1301 Market St, San Diego. Tickets are $25 (plus service fees) and available at avolutionfest.com.
