City of Mesa
WITH THE CHANGING OF SEASONS brings visitors the opportunity to celebrate local harvests and holiday festivities in Mesa, Arizona. The area has long served as a culinary gateway to Greater Phoenix with the neighboring farms and agritourism attractions providing a continuous bounty of seasonal goods to enjoy. Olive oil pressing, corn mazes, and pumpkin patches are the stars of the many fall festivals along the Fresh Foodie Trail®, a collection of a dozen popular food-driven experiences that winds through Mesa and beyond into our regional towns of Gilbert and Queen Creek.
For holiday happenings, musical performances, and art to both appreciate and gift, walk the vibrant streets of Downtown Mesa. Billed as one of the up-and-coming outlets for new independent and alternative music artists on the verge of discovery, the Mesa Music Festival will host bands at multiple venues in November, with P.O.D. headlining the event.
As the winter holidays approach, Downtown Mesa will illuminate with lights and decorations as it turns into Merry Main Street. Visitors can loop around an ice rink, snap a photo with Santa, and see holiday shows at the Mesa Arts Center to wrap up 2017.
