Find where to sip cocktails and beer, party with the fam or picnic in the park with our top things to do in Phoenix this weekend:
Bites ‘n Brews Craft Beer Festival
Come for the beer, stay for the competition. The streets of CityScape will transform into a giant tailgate party with craft brew favorites from Arizona and beyond, plus food and competitive group games on a grand scale (think adult-size beer pong and foosball).
Party Safari at the Phoenix Zoo
Consider this your party invitation to the Phoenix Zoo’s wild family-fun fundraising event. While animal viewing is limited, kids can snack on food and drink samples and enjoy up-close critter encounters, interactive science and animal activities, magic shows, games, a dance party and much more.

Devour Phoenix Bartending Competition
Devour Phoenix’s annual competition pits local bartenders against one other in a spirited mix-off for the title of Arizona’s Star Bartender. Attendees will be able to sample the resulting cocktail creations as well as local craft spirits used in the drinks.
Coronado Home Tour and Picnic in the Park
The Country Club Park Historic District, the spotlight of this year’s greater Coronado home tour, dates back to 1888. Get to know a piece of Phoenix history through open homes, a classic car show and family-friendly street fair with food trucks and vendors in the neighborhood’s 2.5-acre park. The home tour is $13 in advance, and the festival and car show are free.
