Westgate’s free activities offer endless summer fun
All summer long Westgate’s Entertainment District is the go-to West Valley destination for free, family-friendly events and activities for all ages.
Whether it’s live music under the stars, kids cooling off at the Splash Pad on a warm afternoon, checking out over 1,000 bikes during Bike Night, meet-and-greets with movie-characters during Westgate Wednesdays or taking advantage of happy hour deals after a Cardinals Training Camp game – Westgate will be bustling almost every night of the week.
With over 20 restaurants, retailers and entertainment venues, there is no shortage of options when it comes to grabbing a bite, some sweet treats or ice-cold beverages while enjoying these activities:
Live Music Under the Stars
Every Friday and Saturday night, live music from talented local bands share their sounds at Fountain Park from 6:30pm-9:30pm. Sit back, relax and enjoy music under the stars while the kids play at the Splash Pad. Ranging from rock, funk, soul and jazz, bands include Interfate, Ratio, Ghandi’s Garage, Kenny Love & The Rock-er-fellas, to name a few. You’re bound to see people break into dance, too! http://www.westgateaz.com/events/live-music/.
Open daily from 10am-10pm, the Splash Pad at Fountain Park is always a family favorite. Families and friends alike can share in laughter as they pop in and out of spouting-streams of water and enjoy a sunny, Arizona afternoon. http://www.westgateaz.com/experience/amenities/.
