The producer’s vision has taken this event to a new level of visual design and thus creating a new level of experience. 

 

“There are so many great wine, food, and entertainment events on the Central Coast that we’ve really concentrated on creating an experience unlike any other to equally highlight entertainment and art right alongside the food and wine experience,” says Jacqueline Delaney of SpinCycle Event Installations.

 

 

 

While sipping on libations surrounded by ocean views under amazing art installations, chefs from across the Central Coast will go head-to-head for the “Big O Award,” and the audience will be invited to taste their efforts and have the opportunity to judge their favorite on the official Central Coast Oyster Festival mobile application to participate in the “Big O Award” People Choice.
 
While oysters will, of course, be the main attraction, other epicurean delights will also be available. T
he festival will include special art features such as whimsical structures from SpinCycle, a locally based event art installation company who first started at Burning Man creating beautiful designs and unique environments within the festival. SpinCycle will work alongside Bamboo DNA and Alchemy Arts Collective, based out of Santa Barbara; all are world-renowned for their interactive environments, event production and creative design. Prominently showcased at such high-profile gatherings as Insomniac Events and Coachella Music and Arts Festival, truly a perfect fit for the vision of this one of a kind Central Coast Festival. Live artist, art bar and movement arts will be taking place all throughout the festival day.
