The First ever CaliFino Fest is coming to The Mill on Etowah this Saturday.

The latest addition to The Mill on Etowah, Agave Fino Distributors, is sponsoring a new fall festival for the community from 4-11 p.m. Saturday at the outdoor event space at The Mill on Etowah.

CaliFino Fest will feature live music, activities, drinks, and food to the mill. Admission is free. Food and other vendors will be there with items for purchase.

“We are a part of the community now, so this was our way of bringing everyone together to share a great, fun experience,” CaliFino Tequila representative Jose Luna said. “There will be entertainment for adults and kids, food, drinks, live music, and safety guidelines will be in place such as social distancing, but no mask requirement.”

Live music will consist of a diverse group of bands including a Latin alternative rock band Zupernova, the Atlanta-based Latin indie-alternative rock band Volkkan, rock band Scarlett, surf rock band A Long Time Ago-Go, Columbian group Miah, bi-lingual rock band Miguel Y Los Santos Malditos, and the Port Curtis band.

Food and drinks will be available at the festival from Joe’s Lonestar Tacos, Tres Agaves Mexican Restaurant, Great and Plenty, Bizarre Coffee, CaliFino Cocktails made by J Michael’s Prime Steakhouse, and Reformation beer. There will also be a kid zone, which will have free admission, as well as axe throwing, and bull riding.

Special guests at the event will include Rick Bison, known locally as “the tie-dye man” who will be selling tie-dyed apparel, as well as CaliFino Tequila owners Miguel Luna and Phil Salvagio.

“This is the first ever CaliFino Fest, and the plan right now is to make sure that it won’t be the last,” Luna said. “We plan on continuing this tradition for many years to come.”

Agave Fino Distributors owner Jillian Luna said that she is honored to partner up with CaliFino Tequila to bring the first ever CaliFino Fest to Georgia.

“I’m excited to share this award-winning quality tequila with friends and family because that’s who we are, a family that brings the community together, to make good quality memories,” Jillian Luna said. “We hope families of all ages join us on this wonderful experience, in which we expect, will become a yearly tradition. We also ask that people practice social distancing during this event so that we all may enjoy it.”

The Mill on Etowah is located at 225 Reformation Parkway in Canton.
