 Events held in Downtown Chandler each year

Without a doubt, Downtown Chandler is brimming with activity.  In addition to its weekly Farmer’s Market and monthly, Third Friday Art Walk, visitors have come to enjoy a vast array of events highlighting the food and culture of Chandler, AZ. 

For foodies, mark your calendars for March for The Great American Barbeque and Craft Beer Festival and for September for Oktoberfest and the Rockin’ Taco Street Fest.  Each February, car buffs will enjoy the Chandler Classic Car Show, and science and tech friends will discover innovation and celebrate Chandler based companies at the annual Science Saturday event. 

February also marks the return of the SHE Power Half and Quarter Marathon which starts and ends in Downtown Chandler.   Jazz aficionados congregate each spring at the Downtown Chandler stage for the Chandler Jazz Festival. 

Of course, no December trip to Chandler is complete without a visit to see the Tumbleweed Tree – the lighting and parade typically occur the first Saturday in December but the tree is on display through early January and a tradition dating back to 1957.
