Fall Arizona Restaurant Week
This is where chaotic and untidy activities are no longer frowned upon, but encouraged. Messy Fest is an oasis for kids (and those who act just like them) complete with a massive mud pit, slippery slime zones, and even a mashed potato food fight. Buy your tickets online or at the festival, with proceeds benefiting the Phoenix Children's Hospital.
Taco Tuesday is nothing compared to what the Rockin' Taco Street Fest has in store. Head to Downtown Chandler on Saturday to feast on the valley's best tacos from over two dozen Phoenix chefs. Take a break between bites to sip for tequila tasting, a taco eating competition, and a salsa contest.
178 E Commonwealth Ave, Chandler
Rockin' Taco Street Fest
Head to Westworld of Scottsdale all weekend long to score one-of-a-kind vintage finds. The popular annual market is back with everything from rustic denim to antique home goods. Featuring over 200 local vintage and handmade vendors, you'll leave this market with anything but junk in your trunk.
