Scottsdale Culinary Festival


  • Scottsdale Civic Center Mall 7380 East 2nd Street Scottsdale, AZ, 85251 United States (map)

The Scottsdale Culinary Festival weekend provides the opportunity to taste as many foods from as many restaurants as your stomach will allow on 25 acres of park bliss. Join us at our Culinary Experience Tent for demos by your favorite chefs, student cooking challenges, wine seminars from Arizona winemakers, and discussions with other experts and leaders in the culinary world. 

Enjoy live music on the Festival’s three stages, including Saturday's headliner LeAnn Rimes.

Brought the kids along? Make sure to stop by our free Family Zone for face painting, bouncy house, carnival games (with prizes!), a magician, crafts, and more!

Taste creative vodka drinks at the Tito's Handmade Vodka Bar, sample over 250 beers at the beer garden, and learn more about fine wines at our luxurious Wine Garden.
