The Festival's signature event!
Always wanted to try that restaurant, but haven't had the chance. The Great Arizona Picnic provides the opportunity to taste as many foods from as many restaurants as your stretchy pants will allow. While expanding your tummy and your palate, join us for the Saturday Cooking Demonstrations and Sunday's Challenge to the Chefs battle. Take in the scene (the people-watching will keep you busy for hours) and be sure to enjoy the perfect music for the occasion on the Picnic's two main stages.
Feeling thirsty after all that food? We've got you covered with a variety of specialty beverage areas. Taste creative vodka drinks at the SKYY Bar, sample over 200 beers in the Southwest Festival of Beers, enjoy your favorite tequila at the Patron Experience, and learn about wine with the Robert Mondavi Discover Wine Tour.
If you've got the kiddos with you, check out the Family Zone. This area has everything your children love from bouncy castles to art activities and their favorite snacks. There is something for everyone to enjoy at the Great Arizona Picnic.
Can't decide which Picnic area is best for you? You don't have to pick and choose with a GAP All Access Pass. All you have to do is decide between Saturday and Sunday.
