Great Arizona Picnic-April 9 & 10
This event is one of the Scottsdale Culinary Festival's featured events. Two days of food, drink, music and family-friendly zones will surely make you reach for stretch pants. Saturday will include cooking demonstrations from experienced chefs with tricks and tips of the trade. After hours of eating all that food, visit the Southwest Festival of Beers tent. More than 200 beers will be available, as well as music and foods. Not tempting enough? Enter the $5 raffle to win a New Belgium Cruiser. If beer isn't your thing, have no fear because the Patron Experience is here. Taste delicious margaritas and specialty tastings from Chef Matt Carter. The Family Zone is perfect for young ones. Special snacks just for them, food-themed activities as well as bounce houses will be available for all the little ones. Prices for the picnic start at $10. www.scottsdaleculinaryfestival.org.
