The Scottsdale Culinary Festival weekend brings together the many tastes of the Arizona culinary scene—with dozens of restaurants, cooking demonstrations and appearances from nationally acclaimed chefs. Eat your way through multiple districts, including BBQ Country, The Grub Lot filled with food trucks, and, of course, Sweet Street, with sugary samplings. Sip local wines, spirits and craft beers from around the state at the Liquid Arizona Lounge, hit up the Tito’s Handmade Vodka Stardust Lounge or just chill in the Beer Garden. Hear 90’s megahit headliners on center stage. Corporate cabanas and VIP ticket options work best with all ultra-casual to ultra-chic groups lucky enough to experience this summertime festival of fun. The signature 2 day event, is produced by the accomplished members of the Scottsdale League for the Arts™, committed to the awareness of various programs through the Valley of the Sun. Thanks, in part, to their efforts, the programming of the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts thrives today. Over 100 outstanding restaurants, resorts and caterers lend support as the overall festival encompasses once-in-a-lifetime dinner experiences like the Friends of James Beard Benefit Dinner, and chic cocktail celebrations like the much anticipated Eat, Drink and Be Pretty event.
