Taking over the outdoor haven of Toast and Perro Blanco, this all-ages festival promises a sizzling summer soirée that will tantalize all senses.

A Musical Melting Pot

Toast, the beloved Norfolk eatery known for its inventive sandwiches and vibrant atmosphere, will be serving up their signature dishes alongside sister restaurant Perro Blanco, the taqueria famed for its street tacos and mezcal. Adding to the gastronomic adventure is a mysterious Ghost Kitchen, a temporary culinary pop-up sure to surprise and delight.

More Than Just Music and Food
