Flying Burrito Festival taking place in downtown Phoenix on Saturday

- The first-ever Flying Burrito Festival is being held Saturday in downtown Phoenix.

More than 20 live musical acts are set to perform inside Crescent Ballroom and outside the venue on three stages along 2nd Avenue, between Van Buren and Fillmore Streets.

There will also be 16 food trucks and restaurants serving up burritos, including vegan options.

The event is for families of all ages, and alcohol will be served for those who are 21 and up. Children ages 5 and under will not need a ticket.

"We had a number of great bands coming through town and we decided to put them together in a festival. And, what else do people love? Burritos. So we thought, let's pair them together and make it a really fun Saturday out in downtown Phoenix," said Jessica Hill, Special Events Director at Crescent Ballroom. "You'll see all different types of music. We've got some noise rock, we've got a little bit of pop-punk, we'll have a Flamenco act, some Latin acts, a soul act, a little bit of something for everyone."

All four stages are burrito themed. There's the Carne Asada stage, the Bean and Cheese stage, the Nopales stage and the Al Pastor stage.

Tickets for the Flying Burrito Festival are $15 in advance and $33 in advance, including the after party.
