For 50 years, the Scottsdale Arts Festival has brought world-class art, live music, and tasty eats to the heart of Old Town Scottsdale and is recognized as one of the top art fairs in America. Attracting nearly 20,000 loyal visitors annually, guests will enjoy the best in visual, culinary, cultural, and performing arts throughout the beautiful 20-acre Scottsdale Civic Center Park. The festival showcases more than 170 jury-selected artists from the United States and Canada, ranging from painting, sculpture, glass, and ceramics to jewelry, photography, and other media.

Festivalgoers will enjoy live music and entertainment under the sun as a central part of the Scottsdale Arts Festival, and they can explore hands-on activities for all ages, giant yard games, museum visits, and more. Fireweather Studio brings its all-inclusive, interactive installation Camp Dreamtree to the Community Arts Studio. Kids can enjoy this bright and colorful world, filled with self-guided and artistled activities. 

Foodies, feeling hungry? Don’t worry; the Festival brings culinary eats directly to you with a lineup of exceptional gourmet food trucks and eateries from across the Valley.
