This has always been a goal of ours, but we wanted to make sure we were ready for the undertaking. Every year we’ve learned more and have made improvements to the festival. The timing was right for adding a second day in 2019, and we’re really excited about doing something a little different by creating a brunch theme,” said Daniel Davisson, Founder of Davisson Entertainment.Other highlights for the family-friendly festival include demonstrations and presentations by chefs and vegan experts, a kids’ area spearheaded by Scottsdale Center for the Arts, and live art demonstrations.
