Arroyo Seco Weekend’s food and cruise lineup is a festival in itself

June 18, 2017 - Picnic Time

The initial Arroyo Seco Weekend is hardly a week away, and while we’re positively looking brazen to a music festival’s laid-back lineup—Tom Petty, Alabama Shakes, Broken Social Scene, a Shins, Andrew Bird—we’re simply salivating over a food lineup.

When a Pasadena fest was initial announced, we found out that some of L.A.’s excellent chefs were on board, including Bruce Kalman, Neal Fraser, Jason Neroni and Ray Garcia. Casual favorites like Sweetfin Poke, Sumo Dog, Locol, Dog Haus and Nomad’s sailing duck burgers will be served alongside fine-dining destinations like République, Broken Spanish, Redbird and Union.

Now we have a full food lineup of all 50-plus vendors and it’s even tastier.


You can design festival staples Afters Ice Cream, Bling Bling Dumplings and Ridges Churro alongside servings from brick-and-mortar spots Chego, Hanjip and Gus’s BBQ, with beer, wine, coffee and kombucha from a likes of Craftsman Brewing, Domaine LA, Menotti’s and Three Weavers.

The inclusion of a garland of Pasadena names in a culinary lineup isn’t only a coincidence; festival writer Nic Adler privately sought out internal spots and estimates that about 30 percent of a food lineup hails from a area. That’s in further to a Little Free Library pop-up with books about internal story and design from Vroman’s and a family area put together by Kidspace Children’s Museum.
