Activities for Kids

Bring the kids and let them enjoy the multitude of activities provided by local businesses. 

Fact: When you support local businesses over national chains, up to 4 times more money stays in the local economy to support local jobs and communities!

When you spend your money with local businesses, your money stays in the local community. That adds up to make a huge impact that creates prosperity for Arizonans across the state. Join us at the Certified Local Fall Festival to celebrate all things local and discover local businesses in your community!
