Ready, set … gorge!

Today marks the kickoff of the 32nd annual Scottsdale Culinary Festival, which showcases six days of fine wines, celebrity chef dinners, and tastings galore. More than 40,000 people came out for the festival last year, and there’s a special event for everyone’s palate.

The only remaining event taking place on Tuesday, April 13 (the Friends of James Beard Benefit Dinner sold out) is the Bubbles and Bliss tasting event at the W Scottsdale’s Shade lounge.

Proceeds from the festival benefit Arizona arts and arts education programs.
