Visiting Phoenix & Central Arizona

As the desert air begins to cool, Phoenix and the surrounding central Arizona communities react accordingly, enjoying a variety of seasonal festivals, sporting events, outdoor recreation, and more.

As the fall rolls around, the Valley turns red, and it’s not the color on the leaves. No, sports fans are donning the color of the Arizona Cardinals, the state’s most beloved pro team. The Cards will play eight home games from September through early January at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

Similarly, over in downtown Phoenix, the NBA’s Phoenix Suns run the hardwood from late October all the way until mid April. Check out the purple and orange this season at Talking Stick Resort Arena. Many believe young shooting guard Devin Booker is poised for a breakout year.

It’s not all dunks and deep shots in the Valley – upcoming annual events in Phoenix like Oktoberfest at Tempe Town Lake and Zoo Lights at the Phoenix Zoo are sure to delight. Check out Oktoberfest on October 7-9 in Tempe, and Zoo Lights all the way from November 23rd through January 8th.

Outside of the metro area, the community of Parker will be hosting a few choice events for visitors to chew on as well. Check out the Parker “425”, a very popular off-road race held at the Parker Python. There are non-race events, too – check out the Downtown Experience, meet-and-greets, and more. Festivities run from Febryar 2nd through February 5th.

Over in Tempe – home of Arizona State University – the Tempe Fall Festival of the Arts brings around 400 artists booths to Mill Avenue for three days. Check out the array of live entertainment, food, drinks, vendors, and so much more, from December 2-4, 2016.

The city of Scottsdale comes to life this coming winter as well – the Waterfront Fire Art and Wine Festival comes to downtown on February 10th through 12th.  The festival begins at 10 a.m. each day, offering tons of fine arts, tasty treats, live music, and more.
