Food, Art, & Wine Festival at Rillito Downs


Posted on | October 15, 2009 | Comments Off

Hey, there’s a new festival in town: the Southern Arizona Food, Art, & Wine Festival at Rillito Downs makes its inaugural appearance on the Tucson Fall festival scene. (I read beer will be available, too, so don’t despair, beer lovers.) Come join the new celebration of Southern Arizona’s finest culinary traditions.

The two-day festival will feature over 200 food, wine and culinary themed art vendors.  Enjoy live music, dance, ice carving, and cooking demos all day  on the main stage with some of our regions most well known culinary and performing arts masters.  In addition, this exciting festival will feature a pie eating contest as well as children’s cooking and art activities.  Plan to enjoy food tastings from local restaurants and food vendors as well as regional wines, beer and alcohol for purchase on the soccer field inside Rillito Downs.
