As a celebration of culture, community and charity, the McDowell Mountain Music Festival is one hundred percent non-profitable. Working along-side the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation and UMOM New Day Center, past festivals have raised more than one million dollars for charity. The McDowell Mountain Music Festival exists to support, entertain, and educate the arts, the community, and families throughout the state. Every year thousands of visitors flock to the festival for the music, weather, and culture and it’s no wonder you want to be part of it. So stick around to find out how to get tickets for this event.
