WayneFest brings great bands, food and people to Coronado Park in downtown Phoenix on Saturday, November 16. Let’s celebrate the joy and power of a great community!
Now in its second year, the festival is sponsored by the Coronado Neighborhood Association and benefits music programs at North High School.
One stage, 5 great Coronado bands. The fun starts at 4:00 p.m. and runs until 9:00 p.m.
NEO-SOUL FROM OUTER SPACE
The intertwining vocals of Carly Bates and Cassidy Hilgers connect to the rhythm section with slinky ferocity.
The Haymarket Squares
PUNKGRASS FOR THE PEOPLE
Punk energy meets acoustic instruments and bluegrass harmonies for a moshpit hoedown.
Hot House Orchids
Fun music with a big heart, perfect for gettin’ “sweaty like New Orleans.”
Their latest release is “frequently plain-spoken, sometimes poetic, … a soundtrack for wanderers.”
PURE ROCK & ROLL
With influences that include aliens, monkeys and hot sauce, you’ll see why the “O” stands for “original” — or maybe “outsiders.”
TASTY FOOD FROM LOCAL FAVORITES
Admission includes two samples from these downtown Phoenix restaurants.

FOUR PEAKS BREWING COMPANY
Welcome to Coronado Park. We love this spot, and we think you will, too.
Got questions? We’ve got answers.
What's included in the ticket price?
You’ll see 5 amazing local bands, enjoy 2 food samples from some of Phoenix’s best restaurateurs, and receive a re-usable commemorative cup. Beer, wine, and soda will be available for purchase. Best of all, you’ll get to hang out 1,000 of your closest friends!
Are there age or ID requirements to enter the event?
This event is all ages. Those who are interested in purchasing beer or wine must present a valid government issued photo ID.
My baby loves to rock out. What's the entry fee for rock and roll babies?
Baby rockers are welcome to attend WayneFest for FREE. In the interest of safety, please leave strollers at home. It’s a rock show, so probably a good idea to bring some kind of sound protection for the little headbangers.
What are my transportation and parking options?
Use of rideshare or mass transit options is recommended and encouraged!
VEHICLE PARKING: There will be limited free parking available in the parking lot located on McDowell Rd between 12th & 13th Streets.
