  • Tempe Beach Park
    Every year, more than 100 amateur and professional cooks prepare fresh salsas for My Nana's Best Tasting Salsa Challenge. Proceeds from the salsa competition and festival benefit the Arizona Hemophilia Association, which aims to enhance the quality of life for those affected by bleeding disorders and advocate for better medical care and insurance coverage. Now over 30 years old, the fest brings in more than 20,000 people annually. In addition to the salsa challenge, the Patr?n Margarita Mix-Off asks local bartenders to face off for the title of Best Margarita and a $500 cash prize. Outside of competitions, margaritas and cold beers wash down unlimited chips and salsa, and the rhythms of live bands keep crowds chewing in unison. Parents can accompany their children at the fun zone, with multiple bounce houses, interactive games, and a rock-climbing wall.

  • Arizona Mills
    Live music echoes around Arizona Mills. The aromas of internationally inspired dishes waft through the air. And rows of stalls showcase handmade items such as American Indian art, jewelry, and clothing, made by local artisans. At the three-day Taste of Arizona & Spring Training Festival, the public comes face-to-face with some of the state's best local wares?and performers. And on top of that, the Spring Training Fan Fest area shows off sports-centric displays and hosts events where fans can dine with their favorite players or dump celebratory vats of mashed potatoes over their heads. The rest of the festival's tantalizing grub comes from the VIP food and music pavilion. There, a line of food trucks churns out the street foods of the Cajun South, the Southwest, Italy, and Asia, as well as comfort foods ranging from fried chicken to tacos. A portion of all proceeds from the VIP area also goes to benefit local charities, spreading the joy far beyond Arizona Mills.

  • Great AZ Beer Festival
    No one goes thirsty at The Great Arizona Beer Festival, thanks to the sheer quantity of beer that abounds across the festival grounds. This year, more than 50 breweries from across Arizona, the U.S., and the Milky Way come together to share 200+ craft beers. Festival-goers can sample local wares like the Arizona honey wheat from Phoenix-based Old World Brewery or the Odelay Mexican Chocolate Ale from Four Peaks Brewery. In the midst of all this beer-sipping is live entertainment from Big Nick & The Gila Monsters, as well as snacks from food vendors. The festival also doubles as a fund-raising event for local charity Sun Sounds of Arizona, a non-profit radio reading service that helps Arizonans with print disabilities.

  • Danelle Plaza
    For just one day, Danielle Plaza will bloom with music, color, and tantalizing smells for the inaugural Pub n Grub Block Party. The festival celebrates local craft beer and street foods while raising funds to benefit the Arc of Tempe, which serves citizens with cognitive and physical disabilities. However, food and drink aren't the only attractions: throughout the day, an outdoor stage showcases live acts and tethered hot-air balloon rides let visitors soar in the sky after sundown. A family activity area even features attractions such as a 200-foot zip line. Because it's conveniently located in a parking lot, the festival will also include an exhibition of wax-shined Corvettes.

  • Annual Divas of Colour Hair & Beauty Show
    Host Sharon Cooper-Lashley has trained with such celebrity stylists as Patric Bradley and Taliah Waajid, and in the first Annual Divas of Colour Hair & Beauty Show she brings together some of Arizona's rising stars in creative hair and makeup. They may all share a passion for transforming people into walking works of art, but it's not all buddy-buddy?it's a competition. The artists vie for top honors in categories such as Natural Hair, which bans chemical straighteners; Fantasy Hair, which is open to more imaginative possibilities; the Barber Battle, a lightning-round for elaborate fades and designs; and the Make-Up contest, which transforms models into high-concept fantasy beings.
