Messy Fest

Saturday

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. 

20464 East Riggs Road, Queen Creek

Rock The Guac

Saturday

If the thought of unlimited guacamole already has your mouth watering, you should probably clear your schedule this Saturday night.  Sample creations from over a dozen local chefs as they go head to head for the renowned title of "Top Guac." Grab an ice cold cerveza, head over to the gourmet taco bar, and watch live flamenco performances and lucha libre wrestling.  Tickets are likely to sell out, so grab them online now.
