Tickets for Live Events in Arizona
The Grand Canyon might be Arizona's most famous attraction, but the state has a cultural and entertainment scene to rival its natural treasures. With its Old West heritage and long border with Mexico, Arizona has a unique culture influenced by cowboys, Native Americans and its large Latin American population alike. Meanwhile, the state's major cities offer top-notch performing arts companies, contemporary music scenes and major league sports teams among the best in the nation.
Phoenix, along with the neighboring cities of Glendale, Tempe, Scottsdale and Mesa, is undoubtedly the epicenter for live entertainment in Arizona. It's especially notable as a sports destination, home to the NBA's Phoenix Suns, NFL's Arizona Cardinals, MLB's Arizona Diamondbacks and NHL's Arizona Coyotes.
Arizona is a great destination for baseball fans, with spring training facilities across the state. Among them are Glendale's Camelback Ranch-Glendale complex, used by the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox, and Scottsdale Stadium used by the San Francisco Giants. The Oakland Athletics and Chicago Cubs both play spring training games in Tempe.
In addition to all the sports, a number of annual festivals take place throughout Arizona. They include the Tempe Music Festival, Red Rocks Music Festival, Flagstaff Folk Festival, and the Glendale Jazz and Blues Festival. Since 1954, Scottsdale has hosted the month-long Jaycees Parada del Sol, a celebration of cowboy culture. In Tucson, there's the NorteÃ±o Music Festival and Street Fair and Tucson Folk Festival. A quirky event is the annual Ostrich Festival in Chandler. Prescott boasts the World's Oldest Rodeo.
The top venues in Arizona, whose calendars are packed with events year round, include Glendale's University of Phoenix Stadium, home of the Arizona Cardinals and two-time Super Bowl host. Another is Sun Devil Stadium on the campus of Arizona State University in Tempe.
