Embark on a creative adventure for all ages at Art on the Boardwalk by Sundance Creek Promotions at the Arizona Boardwalk, located at 9500 East Vía de Ventura in Scottsdale.

The outdoor festival will usher in the spring season right in the heart of Scottsdale’s Talking Stick entertainment district from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Friday, April 8 to Sunday, April 10, with free admission and parking.

The spring-themed event will feature talented local and regional artisans exhibiting fine arts, crafts, home décor and specialty gift items. Guests will enjoy live musical entertainment on Saturday and Sunday from noon-3 p.m. by The Chacons, a brother and sister duo playing pop and classic rock songs with a soulful, jazz vibe.

Children may create their own work of art and enter the coloring contest.
“Art on the Boardwalk showcases the creative talents of our artists and exhibitors, giving shoppers a captivating mix of art and specialty gift items,” says show producer Dina Giovale of Sundance Creek Promotions. “Make sure to ask artisans about special commission items or customizations to get the perfect size, shape or color for yourself or your home.”

As Scottsdale’s premier entertainment destination, the Arizona Boardwalk features several of the Valley’s most popular attractions, including OdySea Aquarium, Butterfly Wonderland, The Science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and Pangaea: Land of Dinosaurs, in addition to multiple dining, shopping and amusement venues.

Attendees can start their creative adventure shopping one-of-a-kind creations at the Art on the Boardwalk festival. Then, visitors can learn about marine life, butterflies, or interesting scientific facts at the Boardwalk’s multiple attractions. When guests get hungry, Johnny Rockets, Reef Snackbar or Pangaea Grill are ready to serve.
