Scottsdale Culinary Festival: Great Arizona Picnic

April 21, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Imagine the largest community picnic you’ve ever seen. With 50+ food and beverage exhibitors in the picture perfect setting of Old Town Scottsdale, that is exactly what you have in the Great Arizona Picnic. All your traditional favorites can be found here from finger-licking BBQ to mouthwatering pizza to oh-so-delicious burgers and dogs. Not traditional? No problem. You can also find Mexican, Asian, Indian and Mediterranean cuisine at this Picnic. Even your favorite food trucks will be joining us this year! The best part, all the food is sample sized so you don’t have to choose between the taco you’ve been craving and the crab cake you’ve been dying to try.

Unlike your family get togethers, the Great Arizona Picnic also offers the opportunity to listen to great, live music on three stages, explore five specialty areas, a VIP area and see two national celebrities, Adam Richman of Man v. Food and Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods.

NEW AREA! This year we are featuring the all new NBA Experience brought to you by BBVA Compass, Johnsonville’s Massive Big Taste Grill and and Food Truck Court!

Text SCFEST to 70000 for the chance to win tickets to the Great Arizona Picnic! Winners will be notified by Saturday, April 14. Message and data rates may apply. Valid with participating carriers only.

Prices listed above are for admission into the Great Arizona Picnic only. Food, beverages and specialty tent areas are not included in Picnic admission.

Sorry, our four-legged friends will have to sit this one out. Feel free to bring chairs, umbrellas, and blankets if you wish. No outside food, beverages or items that may cause damage to the grass will be allowed. Event space is handicap accessible.
