Lanning has created a wholesome tradition for families as they continue to celebrate our state year after year. She says, “This is an event that is all about discovery, celebration and community.” Attendees will enjoy learning about the countless wonders that make up Arizona and its unique environment. Arizona Fall Fest works hard to ensure that sustainability in our cities and businesses is improved and made aware of. Lanning herself also gives speeches at local events and outings to inspire our citizens that they too can make a positive impact on our state.
