The Fountain Hills Special Event season is right around the corner and we want you to get out of the Valley and into the Hills!

This Fall, Fountain Hills will bring back seasonal favorites like Ballet Under the Stars, Oktoberfest, the Fountain Festival of Arts and Crafts and our 26th Annual Turkey Trot.

However we don’t want you to get too comfortable!  This Fall several new events make their debut such as the Road Runner Sports Craft Classic Half Marathon & 5K.  This event is all about running and beer! You’ll enjoy a well-crafted timed race for brew aficionados of all speeds then you will want to join the fun after-party! Quench your thirst at the post-race celebration of your local craft brew scene.
The Road Runner Sports Craft Classic Half Marathon & 5K is a running experience like no other! Presented by Adidas Running and HUSS Brewing, this event features a Half Marathon and 5K distance. Cross the finish at an Epic Craft Brew After Party with Huss!

Ballet Under the Stars 2013

Ballet Arizona kicks off its 2013-14 season with this unique outdoor performance in Fountain Hills: Thursday, September 26, 2013 at 7 p.m.  The soft evening air, the Fountain silhouette, and contrast of the classic performance against the backdrop of the sunset on the mountains are awe-inspiring…much like the famed Santa Fe Opera experience.

 “Ballet Under the Stars” heralds the opening of Ballet Arizona’s 2013-14 Season.  Bring folding chairs or a blanket, and even some munchies to enjoy. The entire family and enjoy a combination of classical and contemporary works in this breathtaking setting.

Important Note: plan to come early, to have the opportunity for premium seating. The Performance Pavilion fills up quickly for this event…especially the terraces which best accommodate folding chairs, and “motorized” transportation–walkers, wheelchairs and strollers.
