Take your avocado obsession to the next level at this summer’s pop-up experience, The CADO, in San Diego’s Liberty Station. Tickets are on sale as of today ($27 each) for the June to August exhibit, which will feature seven large-scale art installations built out of 16 shipping containers.
The multi-sensory experience—which is appropriately sponsored by the California Avocado Commission—will include touching the avocado-skin-like walls in the “Ripe Room,” discovering the fruit’s beauty benefits in a selfie-inspiring powder room, and, of course, tasting California-inspired bites from local restaurants. There’s even a futuristic, all-things avocado grocery store called The CADO General.
“We love how avocados are a fruit that has roots in California and has so many important stories to tell,” says & Boom Unlimited co-founder Anne Buehner, whose agency conceptualized the idea. “From nutrition and wellness, to agriculture and delicious recipes, there were no shortage of good things about the fruit to inspire the art in our pop-up. Our hope is that each attendee walks away with an emotional connection to the food they love to ‘gram and inspired to try the fruit in a new way.”
Still hungry afterwards? Head to the nearby Liberty Public Market, where more than 30 vendors offer everything from cold-pressed juice to empanadas and handmade sausages.
