McDowell Mountain Festival Preview

The McDowell Mountain Music Festival is the only 100% non-profit music festival in Arizona. Designed to promote three elements – community involvement, corporate participation and charity – McDowell Mountain Music Festival exists to support, entertain and educate the community, the arts and families throughout the state. The Festival attracts visitors from around the country for great music, beautiful Arizona weather and an opportunity to experience true culture. All of the proceeds from the festival will benefit two local, family-based, non-profits: Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation and UMOM New Day Center.

PHOENIX CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

Phoenix Children’s Hospital has provided hope, healing, and the best healthcare for children since it was born in 1983, and has grown to become one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country.

With a Medical Staff of nearly 1,000 pediatric specialists, Phoenix Children’s provides inpatient, outpatient, trauma and emergency care across more than 70 pediatric subspecialties, the most comprehensive pediatric care available in the state. The Hospital’s six Centers of Excellence have grown in size and expertise to place them on par with some of the most prestigious of their kind in the US. 

UMOM

UMOM New Day Centers mission is to provide homeless families and individuals with safe shelter, housing and supportive services to assist them in reaching their greatest potential.

Founded in 1964, UMOM is the largest homeless shelter for families in Arizona. We keep families together, we provide a continuum of care from emergency shelter to transitional housing and finally, permanent, affordable housing. Families at UMOM have the opportunity to gain the skills, medical care, quality child care, and education they need to rebuild their lives and succeed when they leave.

This year’s festival will introduce headliners Passion Pit, Thievery Corporation, Phantogram, and Widespread Panic, among many others. And will take place on March 27th – 29th.
