One of my favorite things about Arizona is its never disappointing annual festivals to which I always mark my calendar. Recently I cleared the weekend of Sept. 18 through the 20 for the incredible Arizona Fall Frenzy expected to come to Tempe Beach Park… And a “frenzy” it shall be with such performing artists as Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, Fall Out Boy, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, The Bravery and much more.
Bring the kidos because along with great music, the Arizona Fall Frenzy will feature water slides, a ferris wheel, arts and crafts booths, a gaming center, food vendors, beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and more. Expect the crowd to be filled with local Arizonans and even out-of-state visitors who will join the pack on the Tempe Waterfront for a weekend of live musical madness!
