Arizona Festival Guide

It may be difficult to believe when you step out your door into the muggy heat of summer, but fall—and cooler temperatures—are not that far away, making now the perfect time to start planning a fall getaway to Arizona. As temperatures drop, native desert dwellers start to emerge from their summer cocoons and begin celebrating the fact that they have made it through another heatwave with festivals that occur outside in the lovely weather, much to the delight of visitors such as yourself. And because the choices are plentiful, we have compiled this list of some of our favorite festivals throughout the state just to make the decisions a little easier for you, our treasured guests.

Birding Festival – August 10 – August 13, Tucson

While you’re enjoying the luxury amenities of our Catalina Foothills vacation home, you can surely spare some time for this unique festival that celebrates the variety of colorful fowl that live in the southern regions of our state. Learn more at

Women’s Day Out Expo – September 9th, Glendale

Festivals don’t always have to be about being outside. This one celebrates the indoors and one of the favorite activities of women: shopping! Send your husband to the links and plan on spending your day examining your shopping options at the Glendale Civic Center! See for more information.

Bacon & Beer Classic – October 7, Scottsdale Stadium

Your Scottsdale vacation getaway is a perfect place to relax in after a long day at the Bacon & Beer Classic festival! Games (including giant Jenga!), music, and of course, craft beers and bacon—do we really have to say anything more to convince you that this might be the greatest festival of all?

Fall Fest in the Park – October 7, Courthouse Plaza, Prescott

If you can tear yourself away from the views in your Prescott Estate rental, take some time to explore the arts and crafts that are on display in this festival that surrounds our historic courthouse in the center of town.

Southern Arizona Blues & Heritage Festival 2017 – October 15, Tucson

Heading south again for this musical extravaganza may just be the second-best idea you’ve had all year (Staying in our Book My Vacay Tucson vacation homes being your best idea, of course!). If you love to sing the blues, your October Arizona vacation should begin at Rillito Park Race Track with the music you’ve enjoyed your entire life!
