Things To Do in Phoenix in March

Things to Do in Metro Phoenix in March

Phoenix Events Calendar March
••• Arizona Renaissance Festival. © Judy Hedding

If you can't find something to do in the Phoenix area, you probably aren't looking very hard. March is one of our busiest months of the year for Phoenix events, with baseball, art festivals, garden activities — this is the place to be in the springtime. Phoenix, Peoria, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale and many other communities have recurring events of which they are proud.

These are many of the March events in Greater Phoenix that you can count on to take place year in and year out.

All dates, prices, and activities mentioned are subject to change without notice. Check the website or call to confirm information, because they don't always let me know when there are changes. Activities in this event calendar are appropriate for families unless otherwise indicated. If the event is free, I'll mention that, too.
