The Avolution Festival, dedicated to all things avocado, will take place in San Diego, California on Saturday, June 8 from 4 pm to 10 pm. While the fest will, of course, have plenty of avocado-centric eats and cocktails, it will also feature totally Instagrammable art instillations by Peaseful, popular San Diego food trucks and music by Lost Kings, St. Lucia and Tim Legend.

The avocado fest is being put on by Chosen Foods, a brand that makes cooking oils and sprays, salad dressings and mayo using avocados. The fest made its inaugural debut last year and quickly sold out. This year, they're expecting to bring in over 2,000 avo-enthusiasts, but as of now, tickets are still available for $30.
