Once again, local chef and restaurateur Chris Bianco, owner of the city’s iconic Pizzeria Bianco, will lead Lost Lake’s culinary experience, Phoenix Flavors. Bianco is a James Beard Award winner for Best Chef: Southwest and helped spawn a generation of independent and artisanal pizzerias around the country, with restaurants in Phoenix and Los Angeles. Highlighting the rich culinary scene of the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix Flavors will serve up food and drink from dozens of local restaurants.

Experience the booming culture of artisanal brewing with over a dozen featured local breweries and favorites from beyond the Valley in the Brewpark, complete with fantastical spins on classic backyard games. Celebrate the agave plant at Nectar of the Gods, offering flight tastings of anejo, reposado, blanco and mezcal as well as a selection of artisanal cocktails featuring the flavors of the Southwest.

Additionally, local artists will be featured with the Art of the Valley. From stage designs and live mural painting to interactive installations, the festival will be full of stunning opportunities to celebrate the vibrant local art scene. Lost Lake will also feature art and entertainment performances at The Lookoutan area dedicated to performance art and spectacle overlooking the lake. Found: The Lost Lake Marketplace will support more than 20 regional makers, creators and artisans at this one-of-a-kind retail experience, and the FOUNDation is a dedicated area within the marketplace to support local non-profit organizations, educating and informing festival-goers of their meaningful causes.

Lost Lake Festival is once again proud to partner with Phoenix’s Valley Metro Rail for transport to and from the festival. Included with each festival ticket purchase, attendees will be able to park cars for free at their nearest Valley Metro park-and-ride location and ride the light rail by showing fare inspectors their festival tickets. There are two Valley Metro Rail stations that stop nearby the festival entrances along Central Ave. - Indian School Rd. and Campbell Ave. There will also be an area for Bike Valet if fans prefer to bike to the festival.
