What better way to celebrate and appreciate the Sonoran Desert than to toast to it? Stand among the saguaros at the Desert Museum and sip on the best local brews in the Southwest at the annual craft beer festival: Party for the Planet! When you aren't sippin', you can visit with engaging animals, dance under the stars, and enjoy local munchies. You can also feel the touch of a stingray and try your hand at desert trivia! This event celebrates Endangered Species Day. This is a great opportunity for you to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species (like Mexican gray wolves) and everyday actions you can take to help.
Food will be available for purchase from Ironwood Terraces and Phoebe’s Coffee Bar, as well as from local food trucks. While water will be available for purchase, you are encouraged to bring your own reusable water bottle (it is a party for the planet)! Water fountains are located across the grounds for your convenience.
