On April 20, 2019, the world’s favorite side dish takes center stage at the inaugural FRIED, French Fry & Music Festival at Margaret T. Hance Park in Downtown Phoenix. FRIED presents some of the Valley’s most creative culinary talent and showcases their versions of gourmet French fries for an affordable $2-$3 each. Larger portions for sharing (or not sharing) with friends and family will be available as well.

Local fryer oil specialist, SK Oil Sales, is providing oil for all fry makers. Look for fries with everything from carne asada and pulled pork to kimchee, chorizo, lobster, and even Bolognese. On stage, the music line-up includes Fairy Bones, Please, decker., Weird Radicals, Gus D Wynns & The Breakers, Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold, and DJs Stoneypie, Reverse Cowboy, and Maintenance.

Attendees are invited to ride bikes to the festival and valet them with Phoenix Spokes People. Then, grab a cocktail from the on-site Gracie’s Tax Bar, or wash it all down with a soda from Jarritos.

This inaugural festival is produced by a founder of the Arizona Taco Festival, Phoenix Pizza Festival, and Downtown Donut Festival.
