In addition to Chandler's primary attractions, there are many Chandler events that celebrate Chandler's unique cultural heritage.

  • A local favorite, each fall, C.A.L.L.E. de Arizona produces the annual Chandler Mariachi Festival at the Chandler Center for the Arts.

  • In November, discover the rich history of the original food truck as Chandler honors the history of the chuck wagon with a unique culinary competition that combines the tastes, smells, and sounds of the Old West. Teams work from authentic 1880-style chuck wagons to cook five courses: bread, beans, meat, potatoes, and dessert. The Chandler Chuck Wagon Festival is a two-day event perfect for all ages.
