Queen Creek’s Agritainment Destinations Offer Fall Events

Post Date:09/28/2018 3:00 pm

Two of Queen Creek’s agritainment destinations are offering signature events this fall. The exciting events draw both residents and visitors, resulting in a positive economic benefit for the community.

The Garlic Festival at the Olive Mill will take place Saturday, Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 30 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; visit QueenCreekOliveMill.com for more information.

The Pumpkin and Chili Party at Schnepf Farms begins on Thursday, Oct. 4 and takes place every Thursday through Sunday during October; visit SchnepfFarms.com for more information about the event.

Additional community events can cause an increase in traffic, especially in areas with construction. Please plan ahead and allow extra time for travel. To receive weekly traffic alerts for construction happening in Queen Creek, sign up for eNotifications on the Town’s website.
