It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Zack “Danger” Brown, he of the potato salad Kickstarter, held the first annual PotatoStock in Columbus, Ohio where he and thousands of potato lovers enjoyed beer, music, companionship, and salad.

I met Zack a few weeks ago, just before PotatoStock, and he told me of an amazing festival of love, happiness, and mayonnaise. Brown is reporting that the event went off without a hitch.

“PotatoStock was great!” he said. “There were roughly 2000 people there. We made and ran out of 450 lbs of potato salad. Homage brought 300 t-shirts and sold out in one hour.”

You can see more photos from PotatoStock on the Columbus Dispatch website and at the local alternative radio station and you can also check out @potatostock on Twitter where you’ll see stuff like this:

Finally, you can see the festival from the air thanks to 8impact. Brown even raised $20,000 for the Columbus Foundation a group that helps the disadvantaged in Brown’s (and my) favorite city.

“It was great!!!” said Brown. His emphasis added.
