Produced by HorsePower Entertainment, KAABOO Del Mar is a three-day experience of music, entertainment, visual art and culinary exploration. Just steps away from the Pacific Ocean and situated within a few hours of all major Southern California cities, KAABOO Del Mar is creating a weekend that will appeal to concert-goers looking for a fully immersive experience. On the culinary side, KAABOO Del Mar will offer food and beverage choices different from typical festival fare. This approach will include pairings from local, high quality restaurants featuring celebrity and local chefs, wine selections from vineyards throughout California, craft beer from breweries in top markets including San Diego, craft distillers in various categories, mixologists and more.
