Tempe Arizona Events
Arizona has been known as the "baby state" since it gained statehood on Valentine's Day 1912, but you may never have heard of the city east of Phoenix. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Arizona Diamondbacks of Major League Baseball play at Tempe Diablo Stadium. In late February and most of March, you can watch the Angels play their loose spring training games in Tempes. The state has had its fair share of baseball events in the past, and more than half of our nation's MLB teams have coached at the stadium, which has been held throughout the Phoenix Valley since the 1940s.
The evening events will take place on Saturday, February 26, from 6 to midnight at Tempe Diablo Stadium. Visitors will enjoy live music, food trucks, live entertainment and more. The event includes a variety of activities for children, such as face painting, games, a carnival and games for children and adults.

Unfortunately, the Papago Saguaro National Monument was decommissioned by Congress in the 1930s and then parcelled out to the Arizona Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, whose acreage would become part of the National Park Service's Arizona National Wildlife Refuge. Unfortunately, it would then be drained by Congress, which abolished it in 1930. Since then, the city has done its best to host several dozen major events in the city center and around the lake. Triathlons are a focus for Tempe and our tourism office is in talks to host the Super League Triathlon in 2020, "said Tim O'Neill, head of marketing and communications at the city's tourism bureau.

At the corner of Mill and 5th Streets, the Laird Dines building takes you back to the days when Arizona was just territory. So it is understandable to say that what you see today in Papago Park is only a handful of stones, but the site is impressive nonetheless. This historic place was once a smelter and an ice cream parlour in the GDR times. One of Arizona's oldest, dating back to 1996, works from a warehouse east of ASU and offers draught beer and bar food.
