We host Arizona’s Tastiest Fundraisers!

Scottsdale League for the Arts supports the arts through culinary fundraisers.

Formed in 1978, the Scottsdale League for the Arts presents the Scottsdale Culinary Festival, the longest-running festival of its type in the nation. We host food-oriented fundraising events throughout the year and then give proceeds to local arts non-profit organizations. 

This year’s grant funding supports thousands through the 25 selected organizations, serving at-risk youth, hospitalized children, young composers, aspiring playwrights and more. Learn more about our the 2018 Grantees here.
