Fat Tuesday, Leap Day and the start to March...Metro Phoenix indulges us with their enticing happenings this special week. Grab your beads...it’s time to play ball!

  1. This week’s first event kicks off on Tuesday with the Arizona Diamondbacks taking on their bitter rivals, the LA Dodgers, in a Cactus League Spring Training game. Experience the incredible weather and Arizona’s all-time favorite thing to do…beating the LA Dodgers.

  2. As long as we’re talking baseball, let’s head over to Tempe Beach Park this weekend and check out the Innings Music Festival. Dave Matthews Band and Weezer will headline the third annual Innings Festival, returning to Arizona’s Tempe Beach and Tempe Arts Park, February 29th to March 1st, 2020. Fans can look forward to numerous appearances by Major League Baseball greats, as well as, the return of “Off the Mound with Ryan Dempster”, an on-site talk show featuring MLB players and musicians. Sounds amazing.

  3. Chili, Bourbon & Beer. You heard me right. Get fired up with great food and music at the Chili Bourbon & Beer Festival this Saturday in Downtown Chandler. Event highlights include a full day of chili, bourbon, country music, lawn games, and chili dog or cornbread eating competitions. Holy Crap. This is the best thing that has ever happened to me….really.

  4. Australia’s “Human Nature”, the hit Las Vegas act will be at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale this Saturday featuring a mix of musical genres that covers classic hits, as well as, chart-topping hits of today. Whether it’s a crowd-pleasing boy-band medley or jamming Juke Joint, audiences are always on their feet. It’s not just critics who are singing the praises of this foursome. Fellow headliner and music icon Celine Dion has called Human Nature “wonderful vocalists who really know how to entertain a crowd.” Well then, that’s it. If Celine’s onboard, it must be amaze-balls.

  5. Journey back to the 1930s and ’40s to the days of swing bands and supper clubs this Saturday at the Queen Creek Performing Arts Center. With a live swing band and the harmonies of the Swingtime Quartet, this show features great hits like “Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree,” “I’ll Be Seeing You,” “In The Mood,” “Tuxedo Junction,” and “Route 66”. So if memory serves…we’ve got the Jitterbug, the Lindy Hop, the Boogie Woogie, and the Collegiate Shag style swing, just to name a few. I totally googled that.

  6. Head over to HD South in Gilbert on Saturday for “A Night At The Museum: Gilbert Turns 100”. This annual signature fundraising event will highlight Gilbert’s centennial anniversary with a night filled with fun, frivolity and fundraising set to a Roaring 20’s theme! The evening will feature dinner, a cocktail hour, live entertainment, dancing, silent and live auctions. Sounds like a Roaring Good Time!

  7. The Arizona Federal Theatre will be host to Harry Connick Jr on Sunday for an intimate performance of songs from “True Love” as well as classics from his remarkable career. While Harry Connick, Jr. is the virtual definition of a multi-talented star, with notable triumphs as a television personality and an actor, the foundation of his art remains his music. It had to be you….didn’t it Harry.

And that’s a wrap! Thanks for listening to 7 Things To Do in the Phoenix Valley This Week, a World Of Arizona Podcast series. See you next week, and remember, more information on all these events can be found at worldofarizona.com.
