Around Town: Sunset Celebration Weekend set for June 5-6

Sunset magazine will hold its 13th annual Celebration Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, June 5-6, on its seven-acre campus at 80 Willow Road in Menlo Park.

This year's theme is "The West-on-the-Go." Sunset editors, along with experts on food, wine, garden, home and design, will share tips, tastings and demonstrations.

A 2,500-square-foot "Glam-camping" area will feature three trailers, including the Teardrop Trailer by Vacations-in-a-Can that can be customized with an espresso machine and solar shower.

Seventeen celebrity chefs will appear on the main cooking stage. Food trucks will be on site to serve up everything from cupcakes to Korean barbecue. The trucks will include those from Sam's Chowder House near Half Moon Bay and Kara's cupcakes.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. There will be free shuttle service from Oracle (formerly Sun Microsystems) at 1601 Willow Road in Menlo Park, east of U.S. 101.

Tickets at the door are $16 for general admission and $12 for seniors over 60. For more information, call 800-786-7375.
