Scottsdale Culinary Festival

A Celebration of the Palate

Join some 40,000 fellow foodies from April 5 to 10 for a six-day celebration of the senses at the Scottsdale Culinary Festival, the longest-running festival of its kind in the United States. 
From cooking demonstrations and meet-and-greets with celebrity chefs, to two days of fun in the sun at the signature Great Arizona Picnic sprawling across the grass-lined grounds of the Scottsdale Civic Center Mall, this is a truly a celebration of the palate. 
Kick off the weekend at the Eat, Drink & Be Pretty Party, a fashion-forward event with food and wine from more than a dozen restaurants. 
Or, watch cooking demonstrations and sip on wine and cocktails at the Cooks & Corks event, which also utilizes freshly grown produce from the Civic Center's Giving Garden. And finally, join the who's who of the culinary community at the Chef Tribute Dinner at J&G Steakhouse featuring world renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten himself. 
The finale extravaganza is an exciting open-air, music-filled event. Some of the Valley's finest chefs will share the stage to craft a sumptuous five-course, wine-paired feast served in a beautiful outdoor setting.
Scottsdale is emerging as a culinary destination competing with the top dining cities in the country. It is home to more than 600 restaurants Рfrom chic to cowboy, spa cafés to speakeasies, not to mention award-winning chefs and al fresco dining all winter long.
Since 2002, the Scottsdale Culinary Festival has raised over $3.5 million for local arts programs so make room and support a great cause.
