Fall is a wonderful time of year, especially in Arizona! Located near our apartments in Chandler, these fall festivals offer a great opportunity to get to know the area, experience different cultures, and make some new friends. Below are a few great events happening this Autumn:
A TASTE OF GREECE FALL GREEK FESTIVAL OF CHANDLER
A true celebration of all things Greek, the Taste of Greece Fall Greek Festival is a fun deviation from the traditional fall festival. For a few days at the beginning of October, St. Katherine's Greek Orthodox Church transforms into a realistic and bustling Greek village. There will be costumed dances, a kids' fun zone, Greek imports, and of course the most delicious traditional Greek foods you can find.
WHEN: October 4th, 5 p.m. – 10 p.m., October 5th, 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., October 6th, 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
WHERE: St. Katherine Greek Orthodox Church, 2716 N. Dobson Road, Chandler
HOW MUCH: $5 admission (Hint: if you "like" them on Facebook, you can get one free admission!)
CHANDLER CHUCK WAGON COOK-OFF
Experience this unique opportunity to encounter the history of the West as teams compete in a cook-off using period cooking methods, the same ones you'd experience if you were on a cattle drive in the 1800's! At the Chandler Chuck Wagon Cook-off, you'll get to experience authentic 1880's chuckwagon cooking demonstrations, live music and performances, various vendors and even activities for kids (or the young at heart). Meal tickets are available for purchase on Saturday and they go fast, so grab yours early! This festival also supports Tumbleweed Ranch in its education outreach.
WHEN: Friday, November 8, 6 p.m. - 10 p.m. and Saturday, November 9, 10 a.m.- 2:30 p.m.
