Festivals & Events - July

Things To Do in Metro Phoenix



At Chase Field for a D-Backs game.

July is typically a month for water parks, splash pads and heading up to northern Arizona to cooler destinations, but there are still things to do in town. Thankfully, the heat doesn't stop the summer bands from including Phoenix on their tours.

These are the community events that you can count on 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. The activities in this event calendar are appropriate for families unless otherwise indicated. If the event is free, I'll mention that, too.
