On Saturday, July 18, Chipotle the will bring their Cultivate Festival to Kansas City.
So what is the Cultivate Festival you ask?
Well it is a family friendly day at Penn Valley Park where you can enjoy listening to bands (Max Frost, St. Lucia, Betty Who, Small Pools and Portugal The Man), watch celebrity chef demonstrations (Graham Elliot, Amanda Freitag, KC’s own Colby Garrelts as well as others), sample products from local food artisans (Rye, Little Freshie, Shatto, Poppy’s Ice Cream and more), enjoy beer and wine tastings, and learn how to make Chipotle’s addictive guacamole!
Special cultivate exhibits include short films on sustainability, why Chipotle will not use any GMO foods, factory vs farm, guac from scratch and fresh vs processed. Collect stamps from each of the exhibits and earn a free Chipotle reward!
Chipotle’s amazing food will be available including dishes from their Shophouse Rice Bowl Restaurants which is Chipotle’s Southeast Asian Kitchen concept and Pizza Locale a new pizza concept coming to KC from Denver! All dishes will cost around $6.00.
For beverages KC’s own Boulevard Brewing Company has created a Cultivate Farmhouse Ale for the festival. I happened to get a sneak taste of it and it is pretty darn good and well worth the $6.00 that the festival will be charging for beer and wine. Other beer vendors include Schlafly, Stone Brewing Co., Free State, KC Bier Co and more. Wine will be available from KC’s own Somerset Ridge.
The event is free to attend and runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Check out the Chipotle Cultivate website for information on music line-up, celebrity chefs, artisans, vendors, times, directions and more.
You can also download the Chipotle Cultivate App to get updates, news and information about the festival.
See you there!
In Good Taste,
