Phoenix, Arizona Curfew

Teens and Parents in Phoenix Should Know the Law


Teenagers in the City of Phoenix, Arizona should know that there are city ordinances that define what hours a minor may be outside within the City of Phoenix boundaries without adult supervision. Parents of teenagers who violate the Phoenix curfew law may be held responsible.

The Phoenix City Code, Chapter 22, covers curfews in Phoenix.

  • Minors under 16: may not be outside unsupervised between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. the next morning.
  • Minors 16 to 18: may not be outside unsupervised between midnight and 5 a.m. the next morning.
Certain exceptions apply. See the Phoenix City Code for those exceptions. Curfew violations are misdemeanors and a fine may be imposed. Other cities within the greater Phoenix area may also have curfews, and they may be different from the restrictions in Phoenix, Arizona.
