Chipotle’s Music & Food Fest in Loring Park

If there was a Portlandia sketch that parodied corporate music festivals that young people love, it could very easily be a Chipotle-backed fest full of indie bands, foodie booths, and community-builiding buzzwords. Well guess what, it’s not happening in Portland, it’s happening in Mpls. (and Dallas-Ft.Worth and San Francisco). On August 23rd, Chipotle’s Cultivate Festival takes over Loring Park with music from Portugal, The Man and Grouplove, and also chef demonstrations from really good hometown chefs like Jack Reibel (Butcher & The Boar) and Jamie Malone (Sea Change). Here’s the punchline: We’ve heard about this festival from at least three different people in the last three days and that they’re super excited for it. So don’t be surprised if Chipotle’s Cultivate might be the biggest festival of the summer.
