On Feb. 3, Kevin Costner and Olivia Newton-John will headline the Thomas Fire Benefit Festival that will provide assistance to the families who lost their homes during California’s largest recorded wild fire.
The Thomas Fire in late 2017 burned 281,893 acres of land in Ventura County, California and reached over 1,000 structures leaving hundreds without homes. All proceeds from the festival will go to those who were affected by this natural disaster and organizations like The Ventura County Community Foundation, World Central Kitchen, and the Downtown Ventura Organization’s Wildfire Victim Fund.
The Thomas Fire Benefit Festival will be a celebration of the strength and beauty that binds Ventura County with performances by Costner, Newton-John, and Grammy Award Winning Singer/ Songwriter Colbie Caillat, Ventura Local and Three-Time Platinum Hip-Hop and Rap Artist Super Duper KYLE, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and more.
The benefit, spearheaded by California Beer Festival, will take place at Plaza Park in Downtown Ventura. Other sponsors of the event include VC Reporter, Vans Warped Tour, Surf Rodeo, and Plated Events by Chef Jason.
The Feb. 3 event will begin at 2pm with a VIP Chef Experience. VIP guests have access to an unlimited sampling of wine and craft beer as well as an opportunity to sample specialty dishes alongside World Central Kitchen founder and Michelin-Rated Chef, José Andrés until 5pm.
General admission gates will open at 4pm with tickets starting at $50 with VIP tickets going for $150. For tickets and additional information go here.
