Notre Dame Prep will transform its campus into an elegant outdoor dining venue with live music by local band, Elvis Before Noon and feature culinary creations from 14 Scottsdale restaurants during its annual festival.

The annual Culinary Festival was established in 2002 to bring the Scottsdale community together to enjoy food, friends and music in a casual atmosphere, according to a press release.

Last year, more than 400 guests enjoyed music and signature dishes from local restaurants. This year’s festival is slated to begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12.

“The vendors out-did themselves with the food,” said Heather Weurding, assistant director of advancement for special events at NDP, in the release.

Featured restaurants will include Ciao Grazie, Tom’s Thumb Fresh Market, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Bourbon Steak, Ironwood American Kitchen, Grimaldi’s Coal Brick-Oven Pizza, The Capital Grille, Mojo Yogurt, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, La Hacienda, Jalapeño Inferno, Eddie Merlot’s, Toro, and True Food Kitchen. The beverage sponsor is Four Peaks Brewery.

“Culinary Festival is a celebration of the beauty, talent and fine dining Scottsdale has to offer,” Ms. Weurding said in the release. “And a way to thank the community at large for their support of Notre Dame Prep.”

Advance admission is $100 per person or $125 at the door. Adults 21-years-old and older may register at ndpsaints.org/culinaryfest.
