We're thrilled to be hosting Prairie Prince at KAABOO 2017 as both a musical performer (he's the drummer for The Tubes) and as an exhibiting artist in ARTWORK. We recently sat down with Prairie to discuss his creative influences and inspiration.


Thank you to everyone who joined us for an incredible KAABOO 2016. With the memories still fresh in our hearts, we have so much to look forward to. We are already back at it – planning your ultimate weekend escape for next year. We hope you’ll be there with us September 15-17, 2017.

This year we not only have memories to attest to a stunningly successful KAABOO, but we’ve got the numbers to back it up.

While it’s still early in our planning process, here are some of the anticipated changes that you can expect come 2017:


All hail the ultimate “mix-perience”! The stacked lineup of incredible music, delectable cuisine, inspiring contemporary art, hilarious comedy, luxury spa indulgences, and the very best craft libations over the three day weekend in September took “festival life” to the next level, exceeding expectations.

During KAABOO, random guests were asked to take a quick survey to share their experience and feedback. We are excited to share the results with you.


KAABOO 16 is now behind us and we’re already gearing up for 2017. In the meantime, however, we’re walking down memory lane with some of the top moments from this year’s MIX-perience, in no particular order.
