If you’re planning on being in the greater Phoenix area in the spring, whether as a tourist or on business, you should make a point of heading to Scottsdale on April 16-17. That’s the weekend of the Scottsdale Culinary Festival, an amazing annual event full of fun, food, and fundraising.
It’s a must-see for foodies of all sorts! Plus, it’s fun for the whole family, since kids under 12 get in for free.
The Awesome Scottsdale Culinary Festival
Held annually for more than three decades, the Scottsdale Culinary Festival (April 16-17) is the culmination of a spring-long series of food-related events in Phoenix. The Festival itself features twenty different events, dozens of top and celebrity chefs from around the country, and more foods, chocolates, and wines to taste than even the most dedicated gourmand could ever work through.
Beyond the usual tastings, there’s also a full “Epicurean Expo” featuring the latest in high-tech gadgets and cooking appliances being used in some of the most progressive kitchens around the world. Plus, of course, there’ll be a full Beer Garden as well, with hundreds of different craft and microbrews to sample.
On top of all that, the SCF also showcases Phoenix’s amazing music scene, with an impressive selection of the best bands from throughout the area, playing nearly nonstop during the Festival days.
And it’s all for a good cause. The SCF is a registered non-profit organization, and has given out millions of dollars over the years in grants to artistic and educational ventures in Arizona. Whether you get the affordable $10 general admission tickets, or splurge on the $115/$140 VIP tickets (with unlimited tastings and celebrity chef meet-n-greets) your money will be helping support Phoenix’s cultural heart.
The Scottsdale Culinary Festival is truly one of the tastiest attractions in the State of Arizona, and an absolute must-see.
When You Visit Phoenix, Stay In Style!
Why spend the weekend in a dingy little hotel or motel room? Phoenix has a thriving rental home market, with plenty of gorgeous fully-furnished houses available for not much more than you’d pay for a decent hotel. If you’re coming with a larger group, the per-person costs are often about the same… but you’ll be getting so much more including a full kitchen and maybe even a swimming pool!
