Just a great way to spend a day supporting a great cause. The entry price gets you all the chips and salsa you can eat. Other food items, beer and margaritas are available for sale. Live bands play all day. There are some other vendors and a play area for kids. Family friendly. Well run event.

Parking was inconvenient. Tried to park in the parking lot on the east side of the park only to be told we had to make a u-turn and go back out to park in the parking garage instead for $10 (even though the festival's website said the garage parking was only $5). There were no signs saying it was vendor-only parking and there were a lot of open spots. Asked the parking guy if we could park at a different parking lot for the park and was told "I don't know if there's a guy standing out there. If so, you can ask him to see if he'll let you park there." And he then again suggested we pay $10 and park in the parking garage. Refused to park for parking at a public park. There has to be free parking available for people that just want to go to the park. So we drove around to another parking lot entrance and that was ADA and volunteer parking only for the festival. Then drove to another parking lot on the west side of the park and found the festival had not commandeered that lot and it was, in fact, free and we could park there and attend the festival. We couldn't help but wonder if they were partnering with whomever was running the parking garage and that's why they were referring business their way even those it wasn't necessary to pay for parking. Now I know for next time.

What a great festival! Amazing salsas, delicious sopapillas, a great array of beers and tequilas, and awesome live music (LOVE Rock Lobster-who doesn't?)!

What a great cause! The bands were amazing. The location was not as convenient as the older Scottsdale location but still a good time.

Try to make sure you find a good place to park, or you'll have to pay $5 to park in the parking structure. Also, BRING A LOT OF WATER!

Loved that much of what money I spent is going to charity. Childs area was a great price, would have like to see some shady places.

This was a fun day. A little hot out in the sun, but lots of food and drinks to try.
