A quick guide to music festivals in Phoenix this 2021
Dated: July 3 2021
Many events and things to do in Arizona early in the year have been canceled or postponed because of the changing circumstances caused by the pandemic. Most of the live music events for this year are now taking place in the later months. Eagerly awaiting your chance to experience live music? These music festivals in the Greater Phoenix area are a sure bet.
September 24-25, 2021
Fountain Park, Fountain Hills, AZ
While it’s not where you would initially go for music, the Oktoberfest at Fountain Park in Fountain Hills fulfills a specific niche: traditional German music. The two-day event (September 24-25, 2021) promises an authentic Bavarian-style Oktoberfest experience. Long wooden tables, pretzels, sausages, and beer steins will set the scene. And the live German band – equipped with a repertoire of German drinking songs – will complete the effect and transport you across the Atlantic and into Munich.
October 7-31, 2021
Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, Gila River Reservation
This historic event has been around for over 100 years. Back in 1884, the Arizona State Fair was agricultural in its entertainment, with exhibits of both exotic and domesticated animals being common. Today, the state fair is famous for its carnival rides, food, and atmosphere.
From October 7 to 31, 2021, the state fair will be held at the Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in the Gila River Reservation in Chandler. The move to this larger venue is temporary and was made to allow for the celebration without compromising on health and safety protocols.
While the slate for this year has not yet been announced, expect to hear live musical performances. You can also enjoy traditional carnival rides, like the Ferris wheel and tea cups, and quintessential carnival food like funnel cake, turkey leg, and kettle corn.
October 14-17, 2021
20585 E Water Way, Florence, AZ
Usually held in April, Country Thunder was postponed several times and will finally happen on the weekend of October 14-17, 2021. The four-day festival will boast headline acts from the likes of Luke Combs, Eric Church, Morgan Wallen, and Dustin Lynch – all household names in country music.
If a weekend over camping, grilling, and country music sounds perfect for you, head over to 20585 E Water Way in Florence to purchase a full pass to the festival and get access to the venue’s campgrounds.
