Canal Convergence | Spring Equinox

Canal Convergence events are a new community tradition in celebration of the Valley’s unique canal culture and history.

Canal Convergence | Spring Equinox is the third in the inaugural series of our Canal Convergence events on the banks of the Arizona Canal at The Scottsdale Waterfront from Soleri Bridge & Plaza to Goldwater Boulevard.

This engaging and inspiring free event features innovative installations, hands-on activities, live music, performances, and Artisan Market's urban marketplace experience.

• Listen to a variety of local bands and musicians
• Shop the special four-day fair of locally produced goods presented by Artisan Markets
• Marvel at live performances by stilt acrobats
• Learn and play in workshops with artists and SRP educators
• Strike a pose with a worm wedding party
Take a guided Saturday morning canal path bike ride
• Join your Valley community and mark the Spring Equinox at solar noon on Soleri Plaza
• Watch large-scale art installations glow through the night

See our Facebook page for updates on installations in progress.
