Their signature event, the Scottsdale Culinary Festival presents the super-sized Great Arizona Picnic. A full weekend of culinary and beverage tasting experiences and Invizion Video was lucky enough to capture the whole thing on film. You don’t need to pack a basket for this huge event-filled picnic at the Civic Center Mall in downtown Scottsdale. The Great Arizona Picnic will sprawl through the 25-acres of gardens and fountains along Civic Center Mall and provide many tasty treats along the way. With more than 40 Valley restaurants, top chefs, and live music on three separate stages, this event is a perfect way to spend the weekend with your family and friends while enjoying some amazing Arizona weather.
