MagicBirdFestivalThe long, hot summer is winding down and residents can soon look forward to not only cooler temps, but the seasonal line-up of Magic Bird Festivals.

The annual art and entertainment events, set against the backdrop of Black Mountain and woven throughout a four-acre Carefree Desert Gardens, include the Carefree Fine Art of the Southwest Festival, the Carefree Christmas Festival and Gift Market, the Carefree Indian Market and Cultural Festival, the Carefree Festival of Fine Chocolate and Fine Art and Carefree Days.

Live music and dance performances set the stage for each event on the site’s newly expanded Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion. Hand-selected local, regional and national fine artists, and crafts exhibitors, along with a variety of food vendors, are featured throughout the scenic botanical gardens. The Christmas Gift Market combines an expanded variety of holiday gift and specialty exhibitors.
