The Scottsdale Arts Festival is one of the hottest art festivals in the world, and it doesn't even take place during the city's blazingly hot summer. That's a good thing because you wouldn't want to flick your sweat onto a modern art masterpiece and still pay top dollar. Assuming the weather agrees to keep it cool, you'll get to look at some fascinating artwork from more than a hundred artists, jam to live music and gobble up some grub from local food trucks.
