Two free events at WestWorld are scheduled in September for the kids, round up the family and head out for a day of fun! WestWorld’s property line literally abuts some of the DC Ranch communities and is just minutes away from the rest. It’s astounding that many Scottsdale residents aren’t aware of WestWorld, which hosts the annual Barrett-Jackson car show, the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show and other high-profile events throughout the year.
As fall commences their calendar blows up with all types of activities and events designed for just about everyone’s taste in the household. In the month of September the kids can experience the circus or a learning and play festival. Adults can experience an elite athletic competition, a vintage market, that may be some of the original and best shopping in Scottsdale, and horse shows of all kinds.
The 2017 El Zaribah Shrine Circus has 7 different show times, September 8th at 6:30 pm; Saturday, September 9th at 11:00 am, 3:00 pm and 6:30 pm; and Sunday, September 10th at 11:00 am, 3:00 pm, 6:30 pm. Tickets range from $15 to $18 for adults and kids get in free with a printed coupon. Every kid that walks through the door gets one ticket and is entered into a raffle for either a boy’s or girl’s bike that is given away at EACH performance!
Looking for something a little more educational? Another family event is the Children’s Learning and Play Fesitval, a full day event on Saturday, September 9, from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. It’s free and features live music and performances, bouncy houses and rides, and interactive activities for toddlers, children and young adults.
For adults and aspiring young athletes, September 2nd, 3rd, and 4th will host the Legion of Beasts Games. Female and male athletes from around the world will take to the arena to compete in the pull-up ring, monster rope-climb, ring muscle up rig, rowers, Competition Olympic Plates and more. Doors open at 10:00 am so come out early to cheer on these competing world-class athletes.
