Scottsdale resort to host OktoberWest Festival Oct. 15

Posted

Get ready to clap your hands and stomp your feet as The Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale will soon host its inaugural OktoberWest Festival, a signature Kierland After Dark Event.

OktoberWest will take place Saturday, Oct. 15 from 4–10 p.m. on the Pittman Lawn of the popular Scottsdale resort, according to a press release.

The festival will feature a western twist on a traditional Oktoberfest gathering, with a modern country western theme. Live music lovers will enjoy hearing an interactive performance from country music artist and Glendale, Ariz. resident Ashley Wineland, who is known to lead line dances alongside country music fans while singing.

The premier country-rock group of the West, Mogollon Band, will also perform at the event. Mogollon is one of the world’s premier country rock entertainment groups. The band began in 1979 out of the Mogollon Rim country of Heber-Overgaard in Arizona. With five recorded albums and songs featured on the Billboard Hot 100 music industry record chart, Mogollon delivers a fun, high-energy, interactive performance.

Special guest singer Donny Grubb and fiddle player Patrick Clark (who toured with Big & Rich) will join Mogollon Band for the night.

A lively DJ, corn hole games, mechanical bull and local food trucks will be there with a variety of beverages from a bourbon-tasting garden, beer garden and more. If you are new to country dancing, join a lesson or jump into the line dance that is sure to happen throughout the night.

Tickets are $45 per person and proceeds will benefit the Phoenix-based veteran nonprofit Friends of Freedom. To purchase tickets, visit www.eventbrite.com/e/oktoberwest-2022-tickets-402693987557.

The Westin Kierland Resort is offering a weekend staycation package for OktoberWest attendees: A room reservation includes two tickets to the OktoberWest event. To redeem this offer, call 480-624-1000 and mention special booking code XY0 (zero).
