Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance (SAACA) and Casino Del Sol offer a brand new Arizona Farm & Food Festival.
The inaugural event is a fresh, new culinary affair in Southern Arizona, with the casino’s Executive Chef, Ryan Clark, leading the vision. The Arizona Farm & Food Festival is a family-friendly event that partners a regional purveyor with a local chef, and tasks them with creating a unique menu to share with attendees.
Event highlights will include live cooking demonstrations, food samplings, Heirloom Farmer’s Market “Taste the Market” tent, children’s activities, cultural entertainment and opportunities to meet and interact with the chefs and producers. Local spirits purveyors will be prominent at the festival in the interactive wine and beer tent. Libations from the region’s breweries and distilleries will be offered, along with guided tasting tours for the over 21 crowd.
Live entertainment and interactive arts experiences will be on tap throughout the day, featuring: Blues, Americana, Alt-Country act, the Kevin Pakulis Band and the Begaye Trio, contributing Navajo music, dancing and painting. Additional experiences will include acoustic guitar performances, a live painter and activities provided by the Pascua Yaqui Tribe Department of Language and Culture and the Tucson Quilt Project.
