Flagstaff’s Most Anticipated Event: Oktoberfest
When it comes to serving up delicious brews and a good time, no town in Arizona does it quite like Flagstaff.

If you enjoy craft beer and live entertainment, then you won’t want to miss this event. There will be polka, live music, contests, a beer garden and more.

Whether you’re planning on visiting with kids in tow or with your best buddy, Flagstaff Oktoberfest caters to everyone.
Cornucopia Fall Festival
Kick off the fall season with mountain flair at Flagstaff’s official fall fest, scheduled for Saturday, September 30 from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. Cornucopia offers a great opportunity for neighbors and friends to come together and give thanks while celebrating the town of Flagstaff with fall-themed attractions, carnival rides, a pumpkin patch, horse-drawn hay rides, a giant Kid Zone and a ton of local vendors. With all these activities, you’ll be ready to head back to Mormon Lake at the end of the night to get some rest.
Pumpkin Walk and Fall Fest at The Arboretum
Looking for one last fall festival to attend right before Halloween? Head to the Arboretum’s Pumpkin Walk and Fall Fest on Saturday, October 28. From 3-7 p.m., guests can stroll through the Arboretum, where fall garden trails are lit by glowing jack-o-lanterns (make sure to bring a flashlight). Visitors are encouraged to get in the Halloween spirit by dressing up in your favorite costume. Attend the festival to enjoy hayrides, hot cider and cocoa, apple bobbing, spooky stories and live performances by the campfire. Attendees can also win prizes for carving the best pumpkin.
