2. The Big Chill at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa
This is another local resort that has big plans for Labor Day weekend. At the Big Chill, the whole family can cool off and play in a pool that features 8 tons of snow and 1,000 pounds of ice. There will also be an ice-skating rink, inflatable water slides, and kid-friendly movies that center on ice and snow. After braving the 100+ degree temperatures this summer, you can look forward to a refreshing Labor Day weekend when you head to the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa.
3.Pool Party at Hotel Valley Ho
Clearly, Scottsdale is full of resorts that are looking forward to helping you celebrate Labor Day weekend without leaving town.

Whether you choose to stay all weekend and even add on spa treatments, or can only stay for one day, you can enjoy the pool parties here. On both Saturday and Sunday, you can listen to the DJ while sipping cocktails by the pool or indulging in brunch before getting a massage.
4. Talking Stick’s Labor Day Weekend Pool Party
Another place with a pool party atmosphere is Talking Stick. This Labor Day weekend, experienced DJ Laidback Luke will be mixing dance music starting at 11 am on Saturday. Stay the night at the hotel and get in free, or rent a cabana or daybed by the pool. Either way, you can escape the heat by getting in the pool and really enjoying one of Scottsdale’s most popular resorts.
5. The 3rd Annual AZ Reggae Fest
If you like reggae music – or just want an excuse to experience something new with the whole family – you’ll enjoy the 3rd Annual Reggae Fest at WestWorld of Scottsdale. From Friday to Sunday, you can listen to live music by performers that include Uproot, Tribal Theory, Pato Banton, and more. You can also walk around and visit various vendors selling food, clothing, art, and music. The festival begins on Friday at 6 pm and goes until 11 pm. On Saturday and Sunday, the hours are 11 am to 11 pm, giving you three days to enjoy some live reggae music over Labor Day weekend. You can buy your tickets to this all-ages festival online.
