Top Ten Things To Do This Weekend in Phoenix

The season has finally graced us with crisper air and perfect Valley events! From The State Fair to Halloween spooks, you'll wish the weekend came even sooner. Check out our picks for Oct. 16-Oct. 19.  


Harvest Fest at Pioneer Living History Museum

In the Valley, temps in the 90’s are associated with fall, Halloween and outdoor fun. If you’re like my fam, you’re probably looking at all the fall festivities that are kicking off in Phoenix this month. Since it’s my six month old daughter, Mia Valentina’s, first fall ever, my husband and I are eager to take her to the family friendly events in town. 


This past weekend, we trekked to the Pioneer Living History Museum for their Harvest Fest. Located in North Phoenix, the museum showcases 90 acres of an old 1800's town. You will see authentic buildings and historically accurate reproductions including the Opera House, look through a rifle port in the actual cabin that survived Arizona's bloodiest range war and browse through an 1890's dress shop. All of this, plus a blacksmith shop, sheriff's office and jail, complete ranch complex, and costumed interpreters including cowboys, lawmen, and lovely Victorian ladies - await you at Pioneer Living History Village, Arizona's most authentic Old West town.


Harvest Fest

Harvest Fest takes place every weekend, Saturday and Sunday, in October, from 10am – 6pm. Families can expect a farmer’s market, pumpkin patch, horseback riding, hay rides, gold panning, petting zoo and more. 


 Important Details

The Pioneer Living History Museum is located at 3901 W. Pioneer Road in Phoenix, which is off the I-17 and Pioneer Road. They are opened from Wednesday through Sunday from 9am – 4pm and closed Monday and Tuesday. Admission prices vary. All details can be found at http://www.pioneeraz.org.
