ABOUT THE FEST
NEW DATE TBA SOON!
Feast your eyes and your ears on FRIED, a French Fry & Music Festival at Hance Park in downtown Phoenix. FRIED lets the world’s favorite side dish take center stage alongside an amazing line up of artists that will make for one helluva party you don’t want to miss. Purchase mind-blowing French fry creations from over 20 makers for just $2-$3, and chill on the main lawn with a beer in hand while listening to a curated line-up of musicians, bands, and DJs.
This inaugural festival is produced by the founders of the Phoenix Pizza Festival and Downtown Donut Festival. The event benefits Downtown Phoenix Inc., a 501(c)3 organization that promotes the continued revitalization of downtown Phoenix. Using their powers of collaboration, DPI works tirelessly to ensure that Phoenix is a vibrant, urban destination and one of the nation’s great cities. They also had never really thought about French fries as the focus of a festival and were intrigued by the idea.
