Annual Foodie Festival is Sensational Hit

Encinitas Foodie FestThe first annual Encinitas Foodie Fest attracted hundreds of people this past weekend. Attendees enjoyed San Diego top chef demonstrations, local gourmet foods, sustainable goods, live music and dance. Proceeds from an Art to Table auction and Opportunity Drawing benefited the Coastal Community Foundation’s Healthy Day Fund. Sponsors and volunteers celebrated at the VIP After-Party held at the luscious Lemongrass Center garden. Encinitas music legend Jack Tempchin and The Rocket Science Band rocked the house!
