The Anaheim Packing District proudly announces the Grand Opening of the highly anticipated, newly restored Anaheim Packing House, a community gathering place and OC’s first food hall celebrating its rich agricultural history. More than 20 hand-selected culinary artisans will open their doors including a fresh veggie stand, juicery, butcher, baker, hand craft sandwich shop, fresh seafood, Indian fare, pizzeria, coffee shop and chocolatier, among others, all of which will serve in a communal dining hall that spills to outside covered porches on rail cars. To celebrate the culmination of a decade of restoration and the repurposing of this 1919 citrus packing house, the Anaheim Packing District is hosting a Grand Opening festival free to the public and spanning the Anaheim Packing House, Farmers Park, and the restored Packard dealership at 440 S. Anaheim Blvd., Anaheim, on May 31 from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The all-day celebration will feature live music from various country and blue grass bands, a ribbon cutting ceremony at 1p.m., hosted kids games and crafts on the Park, afternoon hayrides, free lemonade, popcorn and lite bites, as well as commemorative giveaways while supplies last.
