To kick off the new year, the PartyPop team didn't have to travel too far! A short journey down to NTC park brought us to the 12th annual San Diego Brew Fest where the music was blasting, the beer was flowing, and the corn was popping. This festival featured over 70 breweries, 200 different beers, 10 of San Diego’s best food trucks as well as cover bands and lawn games. The line-up of breweries included several of PartyPops hoppin' partners. Hopnonymous, Second Chance, Bergeon Beer Co, Quantum Brewing, Mike Hess, and Thorn St. all made appearences and made sure to take good care of our San Deigo patrons. If youre a fan of beer, music, and popcorn, make sure to add the SD BrewFest to your calendar for next year. We will see you there!
The Bridal Bazaar at San Diego Convention Center
Love was in the air at The Bridal Bazaar and so was the scent of fresh made popcorn! The Bridal Bazaar is San Diego's #1 Wedding Expo where you can see and experience everything you need to make your wedding day complete. For those of you who are unaware, PartyPop has gone full speed ahead into the catering business. Weddings, birthdays, conventions, even car shows... basically, if an event can be enhanced by the presence of popcorn (which is just about all events), PartyPop is there. We got to chat with soon to be Brides and Grooms from all over San Diego about how we can add some extra pop to their special day... *pause for laughter*... Anyway, whether its made hot on site, bulked up for cocktail hour or custom labeled displays, PartyPop is the way to go. You can all expect to see PartyPop at the next wedding you attend. At the end of the day, The Bridal Bazaar was a spectacular success and helped us take a big step in our new catering journey. We just wish it didn't make us feel oh so painfully single...
The Bay Area BrewFest!
PartyPop took to the road this weekend to rain popcorn upon the people of San Francisco at The Bay Area BrewFest. The same event team that organized the San Deigo BrewFest we all loved so much, out did themselves once again. After a three year hiatus, the Bay Area Brew Festival has finally returned, featuring over 50 breweries, hundreds of beers, food trucks, dj's, and much more! Along with the PartyPop team, some familiar San Diego breweries tagged along for the festivities. Our partner Stone Brewing, alongside Modern Times and Ballast point. We love our Bay Area brothers and sisters but we are glad to have survived the journey and made a triumphant return to our home in San Diego!
Uncorked Wine Festival Los Angeles!
Thats right, one day, two cities, two festivals, the same PartyPop team! More than 150 wines plus wineries, food trucks, music and a beautiful setting—sounds like a perfect Saturday to us. Uncorked Wine Fest returned to Union Station, sending wine fiends into a frenzy with some incredible varietals. The PartyPop team is very familiar with Uncorked Wine Festivals, as we have attended every single one (west of the missisipi) since the end of the pandemic. This time, thanks to our partners at Orfila Winery, La Mesa Wine Works, and Crafted Wine Cellars we came more prepared than ever. A specialized menu was created for the folks at Uncorked Wine Fest LA that paired our very own PartyPop Popcorn with any and all of their favorite wines. This year, PartyPop, as well as all the other participants at Uncorked Wine Festival had the priveledge of helping raise money for a non-profit organization called "A Kid Again" (www.akidagain.org) that aims to foster hope, happiness, and healing for children with life-threatening conditions and their families! Nothing quite like sipping on unlimited wine tasters, paired with your favorite flavor of PartyPop and all for a good cause. We hope to see you all when Uncorked returns to San Diego in April!

When it comes to wholesale, we had a busy start to the year with over 21 orders from our partners of more than 1,000 bags of PartyPop! We love our partners both old and new so check out our January "Pop Stars" below!
Thats a wrap for January! Thank you PartyPoppers and Poppettes for all of your support, we look forward to serving all of you the most delicious popcorn to ever bless our taste buds for months and years to come!
As always, dont forget, it's not a party without PartyPop!
