Yes, that’s right, the Sunday A’Fair is back in Scottsdale at the Civic Center Park with a bright patch of green grass just aching to be sat on by you. Put on by the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, this A’Fair has been going on for 27 years!
Spanning from January to April, this FREE event happens most Sundays and lasts from Noon to Four PM. Grilled foods, adult beverages and “softer” drinks will be available for purchase as well. If you missed the January kick off month (including a sweet opening day featuring Dry River Yacht Club and Walt Richardson) you still have plenty of opportunities to make it out. This upcoming Sunday Feb. 9 will feature Teneia Sanders with her “Motown era vintage vibe,” and the Pete Pancrazi Quartet offering “nimble guitar work, warm vocals and original jazz compositions.”
But wait…there’s more. Not only will there be music and food, but plenty of Arizona artist/vendors will be under tent with their magnificent fares and awaiting your arrival. As if this couldn’t get any better, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art will be open and FREE during every A’Fair event until 5 PM. You can even participate in free, docent-led tours of the art both inside the museum and out in the Civic Center.
“Guests are invited to bring blankets, lawn chairs or pic-a-nic baskets and enjoy a relaxing afternoon of great entertainment.” Ok, I made the “pic-a-nic” part up but you get the idea. Bring your partner, go with family or friends and giddy on up to Scottsdale to have one helluva A’Fair!
