A new pop-up experience celebrating one of the most popular fruits in recent times is soon coming to San Diego. The multi-sensory experience looks at the Avocado, perhaps the most iconic millennial food.
Called ‘The CADO,’ it will focus on the locally grown California Avocado. The pop-up experience will run from June to August of 2018. It will be based at Liberty Station in San Diego, a historic urban village on the waterfront.
The exhibition will be built out of sixteen shipping containers fused together covering over 6700 square feet. It was conceived by Anne Buehner and Mary Carr, sisters and founders of & Boom Unlimited, a San Diego based creative agency. Sponsored by the California Avocado Commission it is the latest in the trend of “Instagrammable art pop-ups in cities like LA, NYC and San Francisco.”
An Instagram Worthy Avocado Museum
Like the mobile Museum of Ice Cream, which featured things like a swimming pool full of sprinkles and gigantic popsicles, The CADO will feature innovative exhibits. Textured walls that feel like ripe avocados, a selfie room focusing on the beauty benefits from avocados and avocado-inspired merchandise will all be available. Visitors can also use old-school walkmans that explain how an avocado goes from farm to store.
The whole experience is said to last about an hour, including walking through a grove of actual California Avocado trees and enjoying avocado based snacks from local San Diego chefs.
Tickets for the San Diego pop-up are already on sale and are priced at $27. They are available here.
