5 Arizona Festivals You Didn’t Know You Needed to Attend

#1 McDowell Mountain Music Festival

The coolest part about McDowell Mountain Music Festival is that it is 100% non-profit. (After the fact that it’s held in downtown Phoenix, of course! ;)) MMMF donates their profits to Phoenix Children’s Hospital and UNOM New Day Centers, who help the homeless population rebuild their lives. That’s one way to make yourself feel good about buying festival tickets! You can pretty much count on a good time, too, because they’ve been doing this for thirteen years. They strive to unite the community, the arts, and families throughout the state. No worries if you aren’t an Arizona native, people come from all across the country to enjoy the music, weather, and culture of this fest! This one generally comes around in March, if you’re feeling like grabbing up tickets.

#2 Holbrook Route 66 Festival

It has been many years since Holbrook established itself as a can’t-miss stop along the “Mother Road.” These days, they celebrate their heritage with an action packed festival. Swing by for live entertainment, free giveaways, and tons of food! Each year, they do a gunslinger car show, featuring all sorts of classic cars that you won’t have a chance to see anywhere else! Be sure to make a reservation to catch a guided Route 66 tour through the Petrified Forest. Super inexpensive AND you get lunch! With three years of experience, they’ve got the festival fun down to a science.

#3 Tilted Earth Wine & Music Festival

You won’t find a better festival than Tilted Earth to experience local wine, craft beer, and music. Over two days, you’ll have the opportunity to attend tastings from thirteen different northern Arizona wineries! And when you’ve finished that, check out the rare craft beers and the delicious food truck food. Tilted Earth  is on their third year of festival success, and we can only imagine it is because they do an exceptional job of providing entertainment to suit everyones tastes. Not only do they put together an impressive musical lineup, but they also showcase BMX stunt performances, and offer trusted favorites like horseshoes, bocce ball, and cornhole. If you’re bringing the kids along, don’t worry! The Kids Zone is packed full of fun activities like rock climbing and face painting, so they’re sure to have fun too!

And of course, don’t forget to chow down on some delicious food, and explore the arts and crafts vendors. After six years, High Mountain Music Fest has perfected the art of a chill weekend in the mountains. When June comes around, check it out!
