McDowell Mountain Music Festival is so much more than a music festival, as people from all over the country come together to experience the 3 C’s of McDowell- community, culture and charity.
McDowell’s vast options of activities varies from a Kid Zone, Free Zone of activities, food and arts & crafts vendors, plus new additions. New additions for 2017 are a cooking demo with local chefs from Arizona to teach you some new tricks in the kitchen, drum circle to rock out yourself and live art as local artists paint to the beat of the music. As the community comes together for these amazing activities, McDowell also has a Zero Waste Goal, making sure all waste is disposed either through recycling or compost.
This environmentally friendly fest also donates all of its proceeds towards two local organizations in Arizona, Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation and UMOM New Day Center, the largest shelter for homeless families in the state. McDowell is a 100% nonprofit fest so you know your money and enjoyment from these 2 days of music goes towards a great cause.
2017 marks McDowell’s 13th year and since it started in 2004, it has raised over one million dollars for local charities. Come join the fest grounds in 2017 and come together with a crowd of music lovers, all while contributing to a great cause.
