Exciting new things are on the way for the 2016 Check, Please! Arizona Festival! Arizona PBS is pleased to welcome the star of the popular series Lidia’s Kitchen, Lidia Bastianich, and Savor the Southwest host Barbara Pool Fenzl – alongside our very own Emmy Award-winning host of Check, Please! Arizona, James Beard Award winner Chef Robert McGrath.
While you’re at the festival, make sure to check out the Inspired by Lidia Booth sponsored by MATCH Cuisine & Cocktails and special guest David Manilow.
We are also in a new location this year, which will allow us more space to expand the experience! Margaret T. Hance Park, also known as the Central Deck Park connecting downtown and midtown Phoenix neighborhoods, is the green space running east-west between Culver Street and Portland Streets from 3rd Street to 7th Avenue. This event will take place on the “neighborhood side” of the park, located on the west side between 3rd Avenue and Central Avenue (67 West Culver).
Plus, just as in years past, you’ll have a chance to audition for the show at the event!
Margaret T. Hance Park is also easily accessible via Valley Metro Light Rail from either the Roosevelt stop near the Roosevelt Historic District or the McDowell stop – an easy way to go green on your way to the festival, and a great option if you’re planning to enjoy beer and wine sampling at the event.
