About

Celebrating Arizona's Culinary Culture

Our main objective is to support the development and promotion of the culinary and extended local food community and culture in Arizona, bringing deserved local and national attention to our state's food scene. At nearly ten years in, the signature Devour Culinary Classic has become the Southwest region’s premier culinary celebration of local talent, selling out in record time for the past four years. Now the capstone, the two-day Devour Culinary Classic sits at the helm of Devour Week, a festival of multiple distinct events that intentionally showcase Arizona’s culinary personalities and food culture while uniting food and beverage enthusiasts from all over Arizona and the southwest region and furthering Arizona as a dining destination worthy of international prestige.

An event for every taste, attendees have the chance to meet Arizona's top chefs and restaurateurs, partake in engaging culinary demonstrations and competitions, experience unique annual features, and taste an enormous array of culinary excellence.

The Main Event

What has come to be known as the most anticipated culinary event in the region, the Devour Culinary Classic brings together the culinary and beverage leaders that are establishing Arizona as a destination. An annually award-winning event, it has been named Best Southwestern Culinary Festival by the New York Times, Best Food Festival by Phoenix Magazine, Best Culinary Festival from the Phoenix New Times, and Best Food Event from AZCentral.com.

100% of all proceeds from the annual Devour Culinary Classic benefit the non-profit efforts of Local First Arizona, Desert Botanical Garden, and Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance.
