Kicking Off the Outdoor Season with Sunset Magazine’s Celebration Weekend

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Sunset Celebration 2011The outdoor season is almost here and I can hardly contain myself. I’m dying to pack up the Cozy Cruizer (see below), drive to a sunny destination and just chill.  I can’t think of a better way to kick off this year’s camping season then to take our first road trip down to Sunset Magazine’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California, for their annual Celebration Weekend.

See details at the end of this post for a chance to win 2 tickets and more!

I have never been to the Celebration Weekend but I expect to literally experience all home and garden topics the magazine has to offer in person. If you’re familiar with the magazine, then you know what I’m talking about.  If not, then you’ve been missing out!

Sunset’s Celebration Weekend Lineup

  • Cooking seminars with celebrity chefs
  • Home and garden ideas
  • Regional artisans and exhibitors
  • Wine seminars and tastings
  • Outdoor kitchen ideas
  • Make it Your Own seminars

Julie Chai, associate garden editor for Sunset Magazine, featured my story on their blog Fresh Dirt. Another great resource for gardening in the West and wonderful how-to videos for the visual learner like myself. Read what Julie has to say about aHa! Modern Living

I had the pleasure of meeting Julie in San Francisco while attending the Garden Writers Association reception at the garden show. I blogged about her in a recent Nest In Style post 15 Incredible People I Met at the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show. On behalf of the rest of the garden enthusiasts, thank you Julie and the rest of the Sunset Magazine crew, for your fun, educational and easy-to-learn approach to gardening!.
