Chipotle Goes Beyond Burritos to Host Festivals in Chicago and Denver
After the success of last year's Cultivate Festival, Chipotle Mexican Grill is curating two more festivals this year.
The first Cultivate Food, Ideas & Music Festival will be held September 15 in Lincoln Park in Chicago followed by a second event on October 6 in Denver's City Park.
Both festivals will be completely free and include cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs like Richard Blais, Amanda Freitag and Zak Pelacci, live music from acts including G. Love & Special Sauce and Allen Stone, an Artisans’ Tent with goods from local artists, a Tasting Tent with local beer and wine, and much more.
“Cultivate is the first festival of its kind to bring together national culinary talent, musicians and thought leaders,” said Mark Crumpacker, chief marketing officer at Chipotle. “These events give our customers an opportunity to experience Chipotle in a new way and to learn something about issues in food, develop a deeper appreciation for farmers and food artisans who are changing food culture for the better, and enjoy some great music.”
