The Festival took off in April of 2004 as an endeavor to bring real music back to Arizona while getting the community together for a great cause: our children. Each year, the festival brings together a number of bands from a wide variety of genres from all over the world to Arizona. The Festival takes place on the last weekend of April every spring.
If you have never been to a music festival, come to ours. Experience the spirit that is cultivated when people join together and have a good time. Bring your kids. Make some friends. There is a silent auction/raffle, marketplace, drum circle, acoustic stage, Kid's Zone and more.
Be a part of helping to give back to the community - all proceeds, yes 100%, raised from the Festival are donated to two charities - Phoenix Childrens Hospital and Ear Candy.
The McDowell Mountain Music Festival exists to integrate and support the community, the arts and the underprivileged.
