You'll die and go to burrito (and music) heaven this Saturday as Crescent Ballroom fills 2nd Ave with tons of local bands, bars and, yep, burritos. Grab samples and full burritos from food trucks and more vendors, plus margaritas and beer, while you kick back with lawn games and live music.

Ostrich Festival

March 9-11

Back in the day, Phoenix’s east neighbor Chandler was big in the business of ostrich farming—the feathers were a must-have for hats. Styles have changed, but the city still honors its roots with the annual Ostrich Festival, where the birds take to the racing track with jockeys or chariots. The festival also features carnival rides, musical acts and family fun.
