The arts play a crucial role in all our lives. This is why the Scottsdale League for the Arts is dedicated to supporting the arts and art education programs throughout the Valley of the Sun. The League raises funds for the arts by hosting social events throughout the year. 100% of net event proceeds are donated to a wide range of non-profit arts organizations through the League s grants program.

The primary source of grant funding is raised through the League s signature event, the Scottsdale Culinary Festival-TM. The festival is held annually for one week in April and offers a variety of culinary experiences from the ultra-chic to casual. It has become a premier culinary event that attracts more than 30,000 people each year.
