Talking Stick Fine Art Wine & Chocolate Festival is uniquely positioned on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community on a 140-acre site featuring vast panoramic views of some of central Arizona’s most iconic mountain ranges such as the visually stunning Camelback Mountain to the west, McDowell Mountains to the north and the majestic Red Mountain to the east. Look past the Red Mountain and see the sacred Four Peaks and the Superstition Mountains where the mystery of the Lost Dutchman Gold Mine lies – the greatest living legend in the American Southwest.
Thunderbird Artists attracts nationally acclaimed, world-renowned and top emerging independent artists that will personally showcase their new original artworks. We invited Wine & Chocolate vendors to participate in our celebrations, taking place on Valentine’s Day weekend. The pairing of a delectable confectionery and ‘Ambrosia” is synonymous with celebrating the holidays. Chocolate has a history dating back around 2000 years. Theobroma Cacao, the Latin word for the cocao tree translates as “food of the Gods” It was believe to have magical qualities. An indulgence linked to health benefits!
Combined with our Wine Tasting event – an additional $10, which includes a souvenir wine glass and 6 tasting tickets – we bring you a perfect way to relax and enjoy art. The romance of sipping fine wines, holding hands and strolling throughout juried fine arts while listening to live music adds to the ambiance of this event.
