Arizona CityFest is coming to Tempe Town Lake March 19th and 20th! This FREE event will feature music, food, and entertainment for tens of thousands of people. Having small children of my own, I’m looking forward to CityFest coming to Tempe!
There will be a family fun zone from 1:00 – 5:30pm each day with crafts, face painting, inflatables, carnival games, a ventriloquist and much more. This two day event does an awesome job of allowing people to have a LOT of fun, but it also stands for helping others, encouraging community involvement and changing lives. Check out this video where Jerry Colangelo describes some of the cool opportunities available through the Arizona CityFest season of service initiatives…
In addition to the family fun zone, there will be some amazing sports action with world class skateboarders, BMX riders, FMX demos by X-games competitors and more. Yep, it’s FREE. You still want more? How about a TON of great music from bands like Skillet, TobyMac, The Band Perry and others. Check out the TobyMac video below for a CityFest warm up!

So, how do you get to Arizona CityFest? How about jumping on the METRO? Our light rail system rocks for getting to and from events at Tempe Beach Park. Bringing the kids? They LOVE to ride trains! 🙂 While some kids ride for free, there are reduced fares available for ages 6-18. ( 5 and under are always free ) The reduced fares are $1.75 for an all day pass. For most of us, and all day light rail pass is $3.50 and can be purchased at any station. You can use any of the FREE park and ride lots along the line and then head to the Mill Avenue Station to go to CityFest. The map below shows the area of the Tempe light rail station closest to Arizona CityFest at Tempe Town Lake.

Oh, yeah… you might be “shocked” to know that the Valley’s own, Alice Cooper is a CityFest fan, as well.
