Tempe plays host to some of the best events in Arizona. Many Tempe events take place outside, so visitors can enjoy the wonderful Arizona weather. Culinary events, art festivals, live concerts and more can all be found at some of Tempe's popular event venues such as Tempe Beach Park, Tempe Center for the Arts and the Mill Avenue District.
Some of Tempe’s most popular annual events are the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, the Tempe Festival of the Arts, the Arizona Dragon Boat Festival, July 4th Tempe Town Lake Festival, Ironman Arizona, P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon & ½ Marathon and Cactus League Spring Training.
Tempe's arts & culture scene will captivate the senses all year long. Visit the Tempe Center for the Arts to see a Childsplay performance, see a Broadway show at ASU Gammage, or indulge in the visual arts at the ASU Art Museum.
