Get ready for a Saturday morning filled with live music, community bonding, and fun in the park! This year’s Neighborhood Celebration Event is Saturday, April 6 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Kiwanis Park Fiesta Ramadas, 5711 S. All-America Way. You’re invited to come connect with your community over coffee, breakfast refreshments, yard games and a lively, informal awards celebration.
This year, residents are asked to bring toiletries for donation to Threadz, a local resource center that provides clothing, shoes, hygiene items, and school supplies to teenagers for school, internships, and job interviews. Residents looking to help can bring deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, body wash and teen-appropriate clothing.

This event is free to attend and the whole community is invited. Tempe’s Mayor Corey Woods, the city council, small businesses, local organizations, boards and commission members, residents, and volunteers will also be present.

“Each year, Tempe community members come out in droves to laugh, learn and connect at the park,” says Woods. “Compassionate, connected, and uniquely Tempe neighborhoods are sources of comfort, strength and beauty for the residents who live in them. The Neighborhood Celebration is a chance to honor and build on Tempe’s strong community bonds”
While this event encourages community bonding, it also celebrates those who go above and beyond serving the Tempe community. Earlier this year, Tempe asked residents to nominate their neighbors for awards. Award possibilities include honors for individuals, neighborhoods, spaces, events, or initiatives. This year’s award winners will be recognized at the event.
