Innings Festival will rock Tempe Town Lake

The Valley’s music scene has been increasingly growing, and the upcoming, first-ever Innings Festival is helping that happen. 

The Tempe music festival is playing off the Cactus League Spring Training season, which is currently in full swing.   

The Innings Festival will run from Friday, March 23 to Sunday March 25 at Tempe Town Lake.  

The festival won’t just have music, as there are plans to have baseball players present and curated chef demonstrations by Chef Beau MacMillian, the executive chef of Elements at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain. 

MacMillian has also appeared on Food Network. A complete list of food vendors that will be present during the festival will be released in the early part of March, but the full lineup is up.
