These are just a fraction of the folks that are going to be there, but if BBQ isn’t your style, there is sure to be plenty of food fare that will satisfy your festival food craving.

The Benefactor

What is so great about this festival is that a portion of what KNIX raises at this event is going right back into the community of Chandler, Arizona. To be a little more specific, it will be benefiting a local organization called the (DCCP), a 501(c) 6 nonprofit corporation. Their mission is to put leadership and resources in place to advance the development of downtown Chandler. This would make downtown Chandler a regional destination for shopping, dining, living, culture, and the arts. For more information, visit downtownchandler.org.
