Expect East Valley spirits to run high this April, because the second annual Chandler Craft Spirits Festival has its sights set once again on Downtown Chandler.
Join us for this year’s celebration of craft, small batch, artisanal, boutique and premium spirits and cocktails. While craft spirits and cocktails are the focus, there will be a few craft beer and wine cocktails mixed in.
Many showed up when last year’s inaugural event celebrating craft cocktails and culture kicked off at 3 S Arizona Ave., sampling spirits, enjoying DJ-spun tunes, noshing on small bites from food trucks and viewing and taking part in special events like the War of the Pour craft cocktail bartending competition. Many more are expected to mix, mingle and network with distributors from Arizona’s own craft distilleries, as well as those from craft spirits companies across the nation, when the craft spirits community comes together again in April. This year, expect even more local distilleries, as well as more local bites from restaurants across the city and valley.
Tickets go on sale Monday, Feb. 23, and include 15 drink tickets. Presale tickets are available for $35 apiece through March 15, and will increase to $40 at that time. This event once again benefits the Downtown Chandler Community Partnership, a nonprofit organization that works to advance the development of Downtown Chandler and enhance its overall appeal as both a residential and tourist destination.
