About this Event

Founded in 2013 by local entrepreneurs, Michael, Stephen and Nicholas, State Forty Eight was born out of a shared passion and appreciation for the great state of Arizona. From sports fans and outdoor explorers to the more fashion-forward, the homegrown brand offers gear for all that’s both stylish and comfortable. Striving to be more than just a T-shirt company, State Forty Eight is dedicated to creating community and reinvigorating Arizona pride. For that reason, local collaboration is at the core of the business and one of the ways that State Forty Eight has ingrained itself in the hearts of Arizonans everywhere.
