The Fiesta Bowl is one of the most sought after bowl invitations in college football. Here are schedule and ticket details about the Fiesta Bowl, as well as information about other Fiesta Bowl activities in and around the Valley of the Sun.
When is it, where is it, who is playing, and how to get tickets.
The Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl (formerly known as the Insight Bowl) isn't the Fiesta Bowl, it's, well, a different game. The Fiesta Bowl Committee organizes that bowl game as well, and it is played in Tempe. Tickets are much easier to get for this game, since it isn't quite as prestigious as the Fiesta Bowl. But hey, college football is fun!
College Football's Biggest Party is a huge tailgating party that takes place on the same day as the Fiesta Bowl before the game. The party takes place in Glendale.
The Fiesta Bowl parade has bands and floats and balloons--all the parade stuff that people love. It is a very well attended event, and you can get the details and parade route here. I have pictures of past parades, too.
See an interactive map and get directions to the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ. That's where the Fiesta Bowl is played.

Sorry, no band championship in 2013, but it has not been determined if it will return next year. See photos of a previous Fiesta Bowl National Band Championship.
