Upcoming Events in Phoenix October
We know why you love living in Phoenix: beautiful landscapes, warm winters, and little traffic, not to mention proximity to California, Vegas, and Mexico. But you don’t have to go too far from your Liv Ahwatukee apartment to have a good time. There is so much to do this month right here!
Okay, so this isn’t in Phoenix, but it is so worth the trip! Oktoberfest is a free, three-day outdoor festival put on by the Tempe Sister City Corporation, held at Tempe Town Lake each year. The event is scheduled for the first weekend in October. Since 1973, the Tempe festival has grown to become the largest all volunteer-produced event in the state of Arizona. Join the party as Tempe celebrates its 43rd annual Oktoberfest.
The fourth annual Dia de los Muertos PHX Festival will take place on Sunday, October 23rd at Steele Indian Park on 3rd Street and Indian School Rd in Phoenix, AZ, from 1 to 6 pm. The festival aims to instill a sense of history, pride and knowledge of Mexican culture to the community at large through culturally relevant programming and activities. Masked entertainers and musicians will greet everyone with amazing performances in music, dance, and theater. Celebrate Mexican heritage and traditions at this beautiful gathering of artists and families.
The Arizona State Fair is back for its 131st anniversary, and it's better than ever. For three weeks, the Fairgrounds transform into a spectacular community celebration with all the sights, sounds, smells, and flavors you crave. From grandstand events to concerts, entries competitions to livestock, and all the thrills of the midway, make the fair the backdrop of your most vibrant memories.
