Desert Ridge Marketplace is celebrating the end of summer with a ton of family fun and colorful installations all month long.
Guests will be treated to live entertainment, giveaways, eye-catching art, photo opportunities, and more.
School is right around the corner and Desert Ridge Marketplace wants to celebrate with one last hurrah before the first day. The Bye Bye Summer Bash on August 5 from 6 – 8 p.m. will be the ultimate summer after-party in The District. Enjoy live entertainment and prizes with Funergy, school supply decorating zones, giveaways, and much more. Plus, snap the perfect first-day-of-school shot at our Star Student photo-op located near the Splash Pad.

This back-to-school season, you’re invited to give back while you gear up for the first day of school. Support The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale by bringing new school supplies and/or gift cards to our Bye, Bye Summer Bash! Be entered to win a grand prize when you donate.

The art is overflowing at Desert Ridge Marketplace. Get ready to embark on an exploration through The District as Artscapes Explore features unique and vibrant 3D window displays created by artists from all over the Valley.

And, we are happy to share that we continue to grow! Desert Ridge Marketplace recently welcomed Ski Pro to its tenant lineup. Ski Pro is a specialty sports shop that focuses on snow skis and snowboards, water sports and related clothing, and equipment repair and rental.
Unfortunately, Amy’s Hallmark store at Desert Ridge is closing but a spokesperson has confirmed that a new tenant will take its place. Details will be released soon.

As always, Desert Ridge Marketplace will feature some of the Valley’s hottest local bands every Friday and Saturday evening from 6 – 9 p.m. this month and beyond. The District Stage will showcase the sounds of Come Back Buddy, Boomer, Wide Awake, Mt and the Streamliners, Cygnil, and more. For more information, visit
