What to do During the Fall in Phoenix

To some, the arrival of September—and fall—means the leaves turning warm colors, hot apple cider, and sweaters galore. However, we live in Phoenix where our desert merely cools down. This is great though since we get a break from the record-reaching, sweltering temperatures. During this much-needed break, here are a few activities we recommend doing this fall:

Try a hike at Camelback Mountain during the evening hours. Right around 6 p.m., the heat of the day is beginning to cool off and it’s time to play. The overall elevation of the beloved mountain is 2,707 feet, a fun September challenge that’s perfect for Phoenix hiking fans especially during the fall’s more temperate weather.

When you’re done with your hike or clocking out of work for the day, head over to enjoy a game or two of cornhole at The Yard, also known as Culinary Dropout. An Arizona staple, this bar serves food to write home about as well as showcases unmissable local talent.


For a spicier time, we recommend participating in the Chile Pepper Festival. Held in Roosevelt Row Arts District, this famous festival takes place on September 30. At only $5 a ticket for adults, you can’t say no to such a hot deal. Try your taste buds and see if you can withstand the heat. 


If you’re seeking a more traditional form of fall fun, there are multiple corn mazes and pumpkin festivals taking place around the Phoenix area. Vertuccio Farms, Tolmachoff Farms, Schnepf Farms, and Mortimer Farms all host various fall events throughout October and November. Make sure to bring the kids for a cute photo op!

You can’t forget about the Arizona State Fair. Held from October 6 – October 29, this is a cherished Phoenix tradition that’s perfect for the whole family. Enjoy a corndog, ride the ferris wheel too many times, and jam out to big names like Billy Currington or DNCE.
