Here’s a festival that’s going to get down with its bad self.

Stratton Guitars is hosting “Guit’ Down!” at a secret location on three-acre property near the Tucson Mountains from 2 – 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 6.

Chef Kalon Wall from Colorado will be creating the dinner while using the ancient art of open flame cooking and elements of the Sonoran desert. Wall says, “this simple style of cooking using what’s available in the landscape connects the people to the land.”

Speaking of the land, you’ll be eating and listening to the live music out in a remote desert area — which will be revealed once you purchase your tickets.

Tickets are $110 per person, which includes food and all live performances, or there’s a discounted ticket at $50 per person but does not include food. The food tickets must be purchased before Thursday, March 28.

All proceeds will benefit Peer Solutions, whose mission is to help kids teach other kids to make the world a better place.
