Boozy Valley Events Coming Your Way This Fall

As the temperature drops, and more and more people come out from their air-conditioned buildings, the local outdoor events start emerging as well. Concerts, performances, bar crawls, festivals, etc. are headed to the Valley of the Sun, and folks are buzzing in anticipation. However, when it comes to the 21+ community, the fall season also means more opportunities to drink in public! In this last week alone, I have been invited to 10 separate alcohol-related events happening around the greater Phoenix area over Facebook, and my calendar is filling up! So, if you are looking to spend your fall days/evenings with a good drink in your hand, look no further. Here are some of the top boozy events rolling into the valley these next two months.

Unlimited Margarita and Mojito Festival ~ September 30, 2017

Although the temperatures may be blistering, summer always gets a cool send-off with Arizona Summer Ends Margarita and Mojito Festival. Boozy Valley Events Coming Your Way This FallIn this ultimate celebration at Chandler’s Rawhide Western Town, you can escape the heat by treating yourself to a wide selection of handcrafted margaritas, mojitos and Mexican craft beers.

If that description from the event page on Facebook doesn’t get you ready to drink margs and mojitos ’till ya drop, then I don’t know what would! You will definitely find me at this local festival with a drink in each hand! (Margaritas and mojitos are my guilty pleasure.)

Arizona State Fair ~ October 6-29, 2017

Everyone in the Valley of the Sun, and all around the state of Arizona, knows and loves the annual state fair. Stellar rides, exotic shows, raging concerts, and mouth-watering fried foods are on everyone’s mind when heading to the Arizona State Fair. However, since I joined the real adult world, I noticed another thing drifting onto the minds of my fellow legal brethren. Booze at the state fair! Around every corner is an opportunity for a cup of beer, wine, or a tasty mixed drink. What better way to spend one of Arizona’s greatest traditions than with a beer in one hand and a foot-Boozy Valley Events Coming Your Way This Falllong corndog in the other?

Punk in Drublic ~ October 21, 2017

Punk music and craft beer… need I say more!? Punk in Drublic is, as the website explains, “created from the mind and liver of the band NOFX’s frontman Fat Mike and named for NOFX’s classic Punk In Drublic album, which has sold over one million copies. This Punk In Drublic festival date will feature up to four hours of craft beer tastings featuring over 100 craft beers, including some of California’s best and local favorites.

I personally cannot picture head-banging to some punk music without a little craft beer in my system. So dress in your favorite black crop top, fishnet tights, and combat boots, and rock the night out with your tipsy self! For tickets to this bangin’ (no pun intended) event, check out Punk in Drublic’s event page here. Rock on and drink on my friends!
