The Scottsdale Culinary Festival is bringing the 90s back with performances by Everclear and Eve 6, plus many more. Celebrating its 40th anniversary April 14-15, the food festival and fundraiser will feature 40 local restaurants and 20 national and local bands across four stages at Scottsdale Civic Center Mall. Headliner Everclear will take the stage on Saturday with Eve 6 performing before.
Formed in 1991 in Portland, Oregon, you may recognize Everclear from their big hits like “Santa Monica,” “Father of Mine” and “Wonderful,” or from their 1998 Grammy-nominated “El Distorto de Melodica” from Afterglow for Best Rock Instrumental. Taking the stage before them, Eve 6 is a 90’s SoCal pop-punk trio known for hits like “Inside Out” and “Leech.” After parting ways in 2004, the group has reunited and returned with their most recent album Speak In Code, the group’s fourth full-length release and their debut on new label Fearless Records.
Other entertainment highlights for Saturday include The Black Moods, Wyves, Rock Lobster, The Sink or Swim, Lee Perreira, Whitherward, The Waters and Joel Maze & Kung Fu Grip. For Sunday’s festival, highlights include Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra, Spark Jack Daddy and Jay Allan & The Uncommon Good.
The weekend’s events will also include VIP quarters, a teen cooking challenge, chef demos, a family zone, a Four Peak’s beer garden, Tito’s Handmade Vodka Stardust Lounge and Hensley’s Liquid Arizona, a lounge packed with local beer, wine, spirits and entertainment.
General admission, beer garden and VIP tickets are available for both days. General admission tickets start at $12 and include all entertainment.
