Magic Bird Festivals popular arts and entertainment shows will expand to northern Arizona this fall with an ARTober Fest alongside of Grand Canyon Railway’s Annual Pumpkin Patch event, located at the Williams Visitor Center on historic Route 66, 200 W. Railroad Avenue, Williams, Arizona.

Magic Bird’s ARTober Fest is designed for the whole family to enjoy. The outdoor show will usher in the autumn season in the heart of Arizona pine country from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Friday, October 13 - Sunday, October 15. Admission is free.

Set in Williams’ famed historic district amidst a mountainous high pines backdrop, Magic Bird’s ARTober Fest will feature more than 100 arts exhibitors and food vendors.

Considered the “Gateway to the Grand Canyon,” Williams is a haven for outdoor adventurers and history enthusiasts. The town has remained true to its Western heritage with many of its original 19th century buildings preserved and converted into gift shops, art galleries, restaurants and hotels.  

ARTober Fest is an ideal weekend escape for locals and visitors, with event festivities conveniently located within walking distance of the Grand Canyon Railway station and their October weekend pumpkin picking patch.

Twisted Horn Forge metal sculptor Tom Williams is this ARTober Fest’s featured artist. Part blacksmith, welder, and avid recycler, Williams designs are inspired by natural and organic forms. He has won “Best in Show” and “Elegance” Awards at the Flagstaff Recycled art show.

Included in the festivities will be live music from the Mother Road Trio on Saturday and Sunday from 1 - 4 p.m. Featuring upright bass, guitar and harmonica, the national act is known for playing American originals and covers plus a lively mix of blues country standards, old time jazz, mo-town, rock and swing.

The ARToberfest food court will offer an array of gourmet eats and seasonal treats. Additional dining options and adult beverages will be available at nearby establishments including local beers at the Grand Canyon Brewery Company. Other family-friendly highlights will take place throughout the second weekend in October.
