August 26– 27
The San Diego Spirits Festival once more calls out to all whiskey & bourbon worshipers, tequila aficionados, gin guzzlers, rum radicals, vodka vixens and mixologists! Since 2009, San Diego Spirits Festival has been voted Premier Traveler’s, “Must-Try Festival of the Year”, and named by Fodors as “One of the Best Cocktail Festivals in America!” For six consecutive years, our Mayors have proclaimed San Diego Spirits Festival and has named it an official day. Join the biggest Happy Hour with the 9th San Diego Spirits Festival’s two-day celebration of all things cocktail. Shake up your summer as you mingle with thousands of people at the 9th annual San Diego Spirits Festival. “The spirits kick in, the crowds grow, the food excites, and entertainment delights, and if you went to last year’s event, you know it’s getting better each season, if that’s possible!” says Liz Edwards, Founder.
The festival is set to delight everyone’s palate and promises to be a feast for all senses, with a weekend of cocktails, food and entertainment. The festival will open your eyes to new and unique cocktails, introducing you to liquor purveyors offering samples of their top-shelf cocktails from small batch to big name distillers. There will be talented mixologists preparing wonderful cocktails, and the finest chefs preparing delicious pairings for you to soak up your favorite libations.
