Live It Up DTPHX

DTPHX_LiveItUp_LogoFall is officially here, which means beautiful days, cool nights and an abundance of fun things to do. This is the season for family-friendly festivals, movies under the stars, theater openings and must-see concerts. It’s time to LIVE IT UP DTPHX!

With so many things to choose from, it’s hard to know where to begin. Lucky for you, we sifted through hundreds of downtown events and found the most interesting, entertaining and off-the-wall things to do.

From the NovemBEER celebration of craft breweries to the AZ Hip-Hop Festival, there’s a little something for everyone. So check back often for fun ideas to fill your free time and inspire your weekends — or search our events calendar for a full list of downtown happenings.
