Feast your eyes and your ears on FRIED, a French Fry and Music Festival at Hance Park in downtown Phoenix. Taking place on the banks of the I-10, in the shadow of the majestic Phoenix Public Library, and surrounded by winding roads such as Moreland, Portland, and Culver, FRIED lets the world’s favorite side dish take center stage alongside amazing indie bands and local artists that will all collectively 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 craft beer in hand while listening to a curated line-up of musicians, bands, and DJs.
This inaugural festival is produced by the calorie-loving 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 of overall positive attitude, 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. So, here we go!
