The Scottsdale Culinary Festival

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. While expanding your tummy and your palate, join us at our NEW 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. Don’t forget to pop into the Epicurean Expo to check out the latest in kitchen and cooking gadgets.

Take in the scene (the people watching will keep you busy for hours) and be sure to enjoy the perfect music for the occasion on the Festival’s three stages. 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!
