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.
In 2016, we celebrate the 38th anniversary of Arizona’s Tastiest Fundraiser with over 30,000 guests, 20 events, 100 restaurants, dozens of top chefs and countless fine wine and spirit selections. This year’s events will begin in January and culminate with our signature event, the Scottsdale Culinary Festival weekend in April.
100% of net proceeds from the Festival are donated to charity. 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!
THANK YOU TO OUR 2016 SPONSORS & PARTNERS
