Chipotle is planning a free all-day festival in Loring Park on August 23.

Minneapolis is one of three cities chosen this year to host the popular burrito restaurant chain’s Cultivate Festival, which will feature five live bands, cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs, and locally-made food and beer.

The local chefs involved are Andrew Zimmern (“Bizarre Foods America”); Jamie Malone (Sea Change); Jack Riebel (formerly of Butcher and the Boar); Erik Anderson (formerly of Catbird Seat); and Paul Berglund (Bachelor Farmer).

The music lineup has Portugal. The Man, Grouplove, The Mowgli’s, Vintage Trouble, and Hunter Hunted.

The Cultivate Festival debuted in Chicago in 2011 and has also been held in Denver and San Francisco. This year it’s back in San Francisco along with new locations in Minneapolis and Dallas–Fort Worth.
