Scottsdale is home to so many things to do all year round, including ski and snowboard slopes, Fall wine tasting, spring brewery tours, and summer hikes. But what are some annual events that are only once per year? Check out these summer 2023 events in Scottsdale and the surrounding areas that you just can’t miss!
Summer Day Splash
Summer Day Splash by Rep Your Brand is the best way to spend time with your entire family and enjoy some fun in the sun! Bring the younger kids here to go super quickly down the water slides and cool off on a hot summer day. You can also take your children to get face painting and look like their favorite superheroes or animals. Plus, you can bring out your competitive side and splash around in the dunk tank to test your aim! There is also live music with talented DJs, fun family-oriented activities that are suitable for kids of all ages, and free parking so you can save money during this vacation.
Summer Sweat with Radi8 Hot Yoga
Are you in the mood to stay healthy and in shape this summer? If so, check out the Summer Sweat sessions held by Desert Ridge Marketplace in the courtyard. This event is free, so you never have to fork over cash or your hard-earned money to enjoy your fitness. Head here on Wednesday, July 12th, from 6 pm to 7 pm to enjoy an easy sweat and then chat with like-minded people. We love the cool Arizona breeze and the laid-back ambiance of this outdoor class.
Breakfast at the Market
Breakfast at the Market at the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market is ideal for grabbing a bite to eat, enjoying the local produce, bonding with your friends and family, and trying some new plates you wouldn’t otherwise splurge on! Head to the Farmer’s Market every Saturday to listen to live music, stroll around the outdoor vendors, and get some sunshine on your face. If you come here during June, you can listen to the Ricky Harris or Taylor Anderson duo play some upbeat tunes first thing in the morning!
Bar Cart Series at the Canal
The Canal Club at the Scott in Scottsdale, AZ, offers specialty liquor, alcohol tasting, 4-course tasting menus, specialty cocktails, and interesting information regarding the making and history of some of the highest-quality alcohol in the entire area. This event is the 3rd Wednesday of every month, so you can even go twice during your summer vacation! We love this as a date night idea or for a small group get-together.
