Few cities in the Phoenix area keep their western roots as strong as Carefree. Nestled above the rest of the Valley along the Tonto National Forest hillside, this quiet community is known for luxury and culture. This weekend, even more culture is kicked up when the town and residents celebrate the 24th Annual Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival.
With more than 155 artisans from all over the country, you’re sure to find that perfect piece of artwork to hang in your home. Mediums range from watercolor and acrylic paints, to sculptures and hand-blown glass. Handcrafted jewelry will also be displayed, along with spectacular southwestern photography.
Sip & Stroll in Downtown Carefree
What’s a cultural festival without world class refreshments? In this unique event, you can actually stroll through the festival and art booths with a little vino in hand. Local, domestic and imported wines will all be poured for you to compare, sip and savor. For $10 you’ll receive a souvenir glass and six tickets to taste. Of course more tickets, glasses and bottles of wine are available for an additional cost.
This signature Town of Carefree event takes place in downtown Carefree on Easy Street. Festivities start Friday, January 20th and run through Sunday, January 22nd. Hours are 10am to 5pm daily and admission is just $3.00, unless you live in The Boulders or another Carefree community – Carefree residents score free admission!
The Carefree Fine Art & Wine festival is a wonderful example of all that surrounding golf communities like The Boulders, Troon North and Desert Highlands have to offer. A perfect combination of tranquility, breathtaking views, culture and activities. To find out all the other amenities to be enjoyed in the area contact the Matheson Team today!
