Old Town Scottsdale

It’s summer in the city and Scottsdale is celebrating. Throughout June, Old Town Scottsdale invites locals and visitors to enjoy “June Days,” a monthlong series of events that not only celebrate the unique Arizona attributes of the city and the season, but also the 70th anniversary of the City of Scottsdale.

“June Days celebrates the very best Scottsdale has to offer our residents every day as well as pleasing our out-of-town visitors,” said Mayor David Ortega. “There is so much to see and do right in the heart of Old Town throughout the month — something for everyone. I hope that everyone gets an opportunity to come out and celebrate Scottsdale with us this June!”

Signature June Days events include:

Starlight Movie Nights: June 4–5

Guests will enjoy a starlit movie-going experience in the outfield of Scottsdale Stadium. This event allows groups of up to four their own designated (and socially distanced) space to get comfy. Gates open at 7pm, and guests can take in some fun summer tunes while getting settled into their spots. Movies begin promptly at 8pm. Space is limited; reservations can be made for a nominal fee; and groups more than four must reserve additional spaces. Cost: $25 per space.

Bike and Seek Scavenger Hunt: June 12–13

From 9–11am, discover hot spots, historical markers and unique sites while spinning through Old Town solving riddles and brain teasers. Uncover the secret phrase at the end of the hunt to win a prize. Cost: $15

Scottsdale Solstice Celebration: June 20

Scottsdale welcomes summer at Solstice Park. Enjoy free snow cones, live music, wandering jugglers and magicians. Plenty of shade, misters and water will be available as guests watch the sun shine through the Soleri pylons to usher in the summer solstice, and dedicate Scottsdale's newest park.
