An Arizona vacation is much sweeter when choosing a package based on your group’s special interest. And a great way to customize your visit is to include one or more of Arizona’s numerous festivals and events into your itinerary. A wide variety of niche events can be found throughout the state and themes are as diverse as Arizona itself. Themes include holiday, cultural, sports, arts and crafts, wine and culinary, faith-based and educational.
Events celebrating cowboy and Indian lore include Prescott Frontier Days – The World’s Oldest Rodeo and the Navajo Nation Fair in Window Rock. The Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff showcases Hopi, Navajo, Zuni and Hispanic cultures at four festivals sprinkled throughout the year. Culinary fests include the Apple Harvest Celebration in Willcox and Yuma Lettuce Days.
