Grill Fest a Tasty Addition To Del Mar Summer Scene

If you’re a racing fan -- and a bar-b-q fan, too -- oh, have we got a deal for you!

Del Mar will host its first ever Grill Fest on Saturday, August 17, featuring the flavorings of more than 25 seasoned B-B-Q pros wrapped around an exciting afternoon of Thoroughbred racing.

The off-the-grill goodies will include meat, seafood, veggies and desserts. You can purchase five different sample-size portions for $10. The tag line for this lip-smacking session is: “Come hungry, leave extremely happy.”

The grilling festival will be held in the track’s Seaside Stage area at the western end of the facility. And if you stick around after the races, you’ll be able to catch pop-rock legends Weezer, who’ll perform as the sun sets in the Pacific just behind them.

The Grill Fest goes from noon until 6 p.m. The 10-race Saturday card has a first post of 2 p.m.

Del Mar’s Grill Fest will benefit Kristie’s Place, a children’s end-of-life care organization headquartered in Southern California.
