An upscale music, arts and comedy event called KAABOO-VAIL is being proposed by the Vail Valley Foundation for August 2017. Learn more about this proposed event at two public input sessions hosted by the Vail Valley Foundation on Thursday, May 26 at the Grand View on the third level of the Lionshead parking structure. Session 1 will be from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and session 2 will be from 3 to 4:30 p.m.
As proposed, KAABOO-VAIL would be a ticketed event held on Aug. 18-20, 2017, attracting an affluent demographic with a median age of 37-39. The project envisions use of venues in Ford Park, including the ball fields, parking lot, tennis courts, soccer field and Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. The event requires approval of a special event permit by the Town of Vail, among other considerations.
KAABOO is an existing music experience which launched in September 2015 in Del Mar, Calif. The event will be repeated there Sept. 16-18, 2016.
