Kick-Off Party

Ahwatukee’s biggest family fun festival, always the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Carnival rides, community entertainment, Beer Garden, Marketplace Street Fair and the Motorcycle Parade will keep you and your out-of-town guests busy all day! And besides….who really wants to leave Phoenix in the winter???

  • Admission is FREE
  • Over 30 Rides/inflatables ($20 all day wristband, individual attraction tickets also sold)
  • Tavern Beer/Wine Garden with college game TV screens
  • Two community entertainment stages
  • Nearly 100 vendors in our Marketplace Street Fair
  • Lighted Motorcycle Parade of nearly 100 riders

Join the Funnest Volunteer Group Around!

FOL events are planned completely by volunteers and are a great way to get to know other people in Ahwatukee while having a lot of fun too! Tasks are broken into smaller sub-committees so the time commitment is manageable and volunteers can use their own skills. Some people prefer to only work on the Kick-Off Party and some love to do the Winetasting, while others are involved in both – it’s really up to you, but every little bit is appreciated! Planning for the Holiday Kick-Off Party will begin in August, let us know you’re interested by emailing!

Here’s a list of our sub-committees needing volunteers/coordinators:

  • Social Media
  • Logistics
  • Sponsorship
  • Entertainment
  • Restaurants
  • Set up Coordinator
  • Marketing
  • Signage
  • Wine/Beer Tavern

We look forward to hearing from you! Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
