What's the culinary part of the fest?
Lost Lake got none other than Phoenix's most famous chef, Chris Bianco, to be the festival's culinary ambassador. More than two dozen of Phoenix's favorite food trucks and restaurants will be at the festival including Chris' Pizzeria Bianco, Clever Koi, Frites Street, Ocotillo, Stock & Stable and more.
Nearly 20 breweries will be slinging their suds, including Arizona brewers such as Huss Brewing Co., That Brewery and Phoenix Ale Brewery.
Prefer agave to hops? Head to Nectar of the Gods and imbibe in tasting flights of Anejo, reposado, blanco and mezcal.
Will there be giant-sized games to play?
Weird you'd ask that specific question, but yes. At The Lost Playground, grownups can play over-sized versions of their favorite games, such as colossal croquet, humongous cornhole, extra-large bocce ball and more.
How should I get there?
Not by your own car. There will be no event parking at Steele Indian School Park and surrounding areas.
Your Lost Lake ticket gets you a free ride on the Valley Metro Light Rail and there just happens to be stops near the two festival entrances on Central Avenue and 3rd St—you can hop off at Central Avenue either on Indian School (closest) or farther north on Campbell. And Valley Metro has 11 park-and-ride locations along the rail line.
If you prefer to pedal, there'll be a bike valet to store your two wheels.
There are also shuttle tickets available for purchase. The shuttles will depart from El Hefe in Tempe, Bottled Blonde in Scottsdale and Cabin in Peoria.
Ride-hailing services Uber, Lyft and zTrip also operate throughout Greater Phoenix.
Can I camp at the festival?
Nope. Lost Lake is a non-camping festival.
Where should I stay then?
For more options, the festival has partnered with Curadora to help festival-goers find lodging.
What else should I do while in Phoenix?
Great question! You can explore the nearby downtown nightlife and dining, take a selfie with a saguaro while you explore the desert, visit one of our top attractions, or enjoy lots more things to do in Phoenix.
What if I've got more questions?
