For those new to this festival experience, The McDowell Mountain Music Festival is Arizona’s 100% non-profit music festival. The festival has been designed to promote community involvement, corporate participation and charity, and to support, entertain, and educate the community.
Every year, thousands of visitors flock to Arizona for this festival, the beautiful Arizona weather, and an opportunity to experience culture. Each year, charities are chosen during a distinct selection process. In 2016 the festival raised $50, 000 for UMOM New Day Centers and Phoenix Children’s hospital. Festival founder, John Largay, is very proud that over the last 13 years the festival has donated over $1 million to family-based charities. He is hoping that the fan base they have built will keep returning and continue to grow over the coming years.
