Dear Northeast, we’re sorry about the “disruptive snow storms” in the forecast. Here are a few ways we’ll have fun in the sun and enjoy top things to do in Phoenix this weekend:
CrushBrew Craft Beverage Festival
Craft wine, cider, beer and spirits fill the menu for two days of sampling along the Scottsdale Waterfront. Festival attendees can cast their vote for the best beverages as well as their favorite slices in a wood-fired pizza throwdown.
7134 E. Stetson Dr., Scottsdale 85251
D-backs Fan Fest
Chase Field goes to the fans as the Arizona Diamondbacks host a free day of festivities including photo ops, a family fun zone, batting cage practice and autograph sessions. Player autograph vouchers are available for $5 in limited quantity, and free for kids 12 and under.
401 East Jefferson St., Phoenix 85004
POPnology at Arizona Science Center
Through May 15
Get up-close with new technologies and their pop culture counterparts at Arizona Science Center’s newest exhibit. Real-world robotics, a life-size Terminator, the world’s first 3D-printed car and more engaging displays blend science fiction and reality—by the end, you’ll be wishing you could ride out on Marty McFly’s hoverboard.
600 E Washington St, Phoenix, AZ 85004
Cirque de la Symphonie
The world’s only symphony-exclusive circus company executes its aerial acts and feats of strength to orchestrations by The Phoenix Symphony. Enjoy the performances both on the stage and high up above it.
Spend an evening at the theater with these productions running through the weekend:
Becoming Dr. Ruth and Fences at Herberger Theater Center
The Bridges of Madison County at ASU Gammage
Pinocchio at Valley Youth Theatre
The Producers at Orpheum Theatre
