Phoenix Events - March

Phoenix Festivals and Events in March


Phoenix Events Calendar March

Arizona Renaissance Festival

© Judy Hedding

If you can't find something to do in the Phoenix area, you probably aren't looking very hard. March is one of our busiest months of the year, with baseball, art festivals, garden events -- this is the place to be in the springtime. Phoenix, Peoria, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale and many other communities have recurring events of which they are proud.

These are many of the events that you can count on to take place year in and year out. All dates, prices, and activities mentioned are subject to change without notice. Check the website or call to confirm information, because they don't always let me know when there are changes. Activities in this event calendar are appropriate for families unless otherwise indicated. If the event is free, I'll mention that, too.

Looking for big name concerts, shows or theatre? Check this calendar for March performances.
