Can’t Miss Summer Events in Chandler

The summer is here! Glorious days filled with sunshine and space – so what are you going to fill them with? We’ve got the full scoop on what’s happening right here in Chandler in our new blog Can’t Miss Summer Events in Chandler 2017!

Let’s kick all things July 4th in Chandler, Az off with the July 4th Fireworks Spectacular. Starting at 5pm with a fireworks show at 9 (and closing down at 10:30pm), the Spectacular promises to be…well, spectacular! The whole thing’s going down in Tumbleweed Park and features musical acts People Who Can Fly and Blaine Long as well as a DJ. You’ll also find (deep breath): Laser Tag, Game on Wheelz, Face Painting, A Balloon Artist, Archery, Basketball, Football, a Western Shooting Game, a Lego Trackless Train and an inflatable Car Wash that you’re invited to walk through!

For a celebration of all things movies (and air conditioning!), check out the IndieAZ Fest 2017 at the Tempe Pollack Theater. Founded by friends Ann Cabano and Angela Friis, IndieAZ Fest is a celebration of film held in Tempe, Arizona, which seeks to bring local Grand Canyon State talent to the big screen in front of real crowds. IndieAZ encourages Arizona filmmakers to put together short projects to be judged (and later screened) by panels and special guests, and donates proceeds from the festival to local non-profits and charities.

Now summer’s here in Chandler you can hit up the monthly Downtown Chandler Art Walk. If you’ve been thinking about checking out all the neat shops and restaurants lining the streets of downtown Chandler, Arizona, but haven’t gotten around to it, this is the perfect way to dive right in – and it happens every third Friday from 6-9:30pm. Downtown Chandler Art Walk features live music, a wide variety of juried artwork from local artists and an opportunity to take the family on a stroll through downtown Chandler.

These are just a few of the summer events taking place in Chandler this year. Wherever you go this summer, be sure to have fun and drink responsibly!
