It is already February which means the beautiful spring weather is coming soon. As the sun starts to get warmer, it is the perfect time for you to start thinking about which local events you want to attend. Make this a year for trying new things and having memorable experiences. The valley hosts numerous annual events including music festivals, art shows, sports games, and more. In case this is your first spring under the Arizona sun, here are a few of the most exciting local events that you can’t miss.
Innings Festival: Located in the East Valley, this event hosts headliners like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Hozier, Greta Van Fleet, and Macklemore. It is the place to be if you enjoy pop, rock, or indie music. The Innings festival has a reason for its name; occurring alongside Spring Training at the end of February, it has baseball themed activities and opportunities for passionate baseball fans to come together. Don’t worry, if you are already booked and busy near the end of February, the festival hosts even more artists the weekend after.
Spring Training: Do you enjoy watching your favorite sports teams from home but wish you could see them locally? Metro Phoenix hosts Cactus League spring training every year with 15 teams playing games across the valley. The teams travel to ballparks in Scottsdale, Tempe, Surprise, Goodyear, and Mesa so there are plenty of opportunities for you to see your favorite players. Nothing beats spending a warm spring day with friends and family at a ballgame.


March Madness: It’s that time of year where everywhere you go you hear sports fans buzzing around. Grab tickets and join the energetic crowd at this year’s NCAA March Madness tournament with the Final Four, happening in Glendale. This iconic tournament determines the men’s college basketball national champion. If you love anything sports, March Madness is perfect for you.
Tempe Festival of the Arts: Another event that is perfect for East Valley residents. From live music and food trucks to caricature artists and magicians, this event captures it all. The Tempe Festival of the Arts is one of the longest running festivals in the area. If you have a passion for photography, digital art, jewelry, or upcycled pieces, take part in this lively festival happening at the beginning of March.
