In 2015 we celebrate the 37th anniversary of the Scottsdale Culinary Festival, the longest running event of its type in the nation. The Festival has grown to a community favorite hosting over 35,000 guests, 20 events, 100 restaurants, dozens of top chefs and countless fine wine and spirit selections.

The six day festival offers a diverse menu of luxurious dinners, themed cocktail parties and our signature event, the Great Arizona Picnic, featuring 50 restaurants, chef demonstrations, live bands and specialty tasting venues.

The festival is the primary fundraiser for the Scottsdale League for the Arts, whose members and staff work all year to present the festival. The League’s mission is to support artists, art programs, and arts education through fundraising and special events. Since 2002, the League has donated over $4 million to arts organizations in Arizona. When you attend a festival event or volunteer, you are supporting the arts and culinary scene in the Valley of the Sun – thank you!
