LAS VEGAS: Life Is Beautiful Festival in Downtown Vegas

October will bring the Life Is Beautiful Festival to downtown Las Vegas. Taking over 15 blocks, this year’s festival features art, culture, music, and several extraordinary culinary events.

Over the course of two days, art, culture and musical events abound, and the musical lineup alone is downright stellar: The Killers, Kings of Leon, Imagine Dragons, Alabama Shakes, Beck, Portugal The Man, Passion Pit, and more (yes, more!). There will also be featured performances from several Cirque de Soleil shows, the Jabawockeez, Rock of Ages, and artists D*Face, Vhils, Zio Ziegler, Intersni Kaski and Alexis Diaz.

At the heart of the festival is a culinary village featuring some of the world’s best chefs and restaurants. Over 50 vendors will be offering gourmet food, all for a price tag of $10 or less. Check out the offerings from Hubert Keller, Cat Cora, Rick Moonen, Michael Mina, Tom Colicchio and more. The companion Alchemy Garden will be offering liquid refreshment to festival-goers. Featuring craft brews, top-notch wineries and spirit distillers, you can purchase a-la-carte libations and taste to your heart’s content! And for those you who are really into the food scene, there are special culinary events, such as a Flight Tasting, Grills & Guitars, a Culinary Crawl, and a limited seating charity dinner called “Take A Stand.”
