High Street is hosting two outdoor socially-distanced events this month. Both events will take place at the popular shopping center, located at 5410 E. High Street, in Phoenix. If you are looking for a great way to listen to live music, enjoy yummy food and drinks, and have a fun time socializing with the community once again, these events might be right up your alley!

The High Street Taco and Margarita Festival will be held on Saturday, May 8 from 2 to 10 p.m. If you are a fan of refreshing margaritas and the best street tacos in Arizona, this is the event for you. Not only will there be delicious food and drinks but also live music from Ultimate Bon Jovi and Animal Magnetism. You must be 18 years or older to attend this event and 21 or over to purchase alcoholic beverages.
