Tijon Goes to CityFest
The 30th annual CityFest street fair, taking place in the heart of Hillcrest, attracted over 150,000 visitors this year! Tijon Fragrance Lab and Boutique was able to be a part of this amazing day as one of the 250 vendors present. Over the past three years, the event has allowed its guests to stay past sundown and dance the night away. It was fun to see kids and adults from all walks of life enjoying another beautiful San Diego day, celebrating the Hillcrest community. The community spirit was captured through music, arts, crafts, and my personal favorite, food. The attendees experienced everything from a petting zoo and carnival rides on one end, to a beer garden and concert stage on the other, with artisans and crafters in between. As fragrance crafters, Tijon made its mark among the artisans in artist alley.
Tijon-A-Go-Go Does it Again
Tijon-a-go-go is our traveling fragrance lab that never disappoints. If the wonderful smell didn’t lure the attendees to the Tijon booth, then our great raffle prizes did. We gave away a Tijon Beach Bag that transforms into a beach blanket (stakes included!) and a rainbow oil warmer.
After signing up to win our great raffle prizes, attendees would wearily move towards our fragrance creation station. I say wearily because the first question out of most attendee’s mouths was “well, how much does this cost?” Once word got around that it was FREE, we couldn’t get rid of them! We had teenagers, adults, men, women, gay, and straight: everyone wanted to be a part of the Tijon booth. We also created a lot of buzz and excitement with our red carpet! People lined up to take their picture in front of our Tijon backdrop on our exclusive red carpet. What a fun day.
CityFest Does it Again
After 30 years of bringing the Hillcrest community together, CityFest boasts another successful year. The event started back in 1984 to commemorate the rebuilding of the famous Hillcrest sign. And today it represents the diverse community with all of its wonderful people, restaurants, and stores. While the Tijon team enjoyed breakfast at Harvey Milk’s American Diner, every restaurant we passed smelled better than the last!
The team was swamped with booth-goers all day, however, we were allowed to take a quick minute to visit some other booths and check out the local restaurants and stores. Whatever you were searching for, you could find at CityFest. From clothing, sunglasses, and skin care products to pets, food, and experiences. It was a day filled with people enjoying everything San Diego has to offer and the company of their friends, new-friends, and family.
While you were given a little tester of what Tijon has to offer at CityFest, we encourage you to come in and enjoy the FULL Tijon Experience at our Fragrance lab located at 7853 Herschel Ave. La Jolla, CA.
