Scottsdale Stories & Sweets: Scottsdale Innovation

Scottsdale Stories & Sweets will return to June Days for its third year. Each Tuesday in June, stop by the Community Design Studio for a sweet treat and listen to storyteller Bruce Wall as he shares a fascinating story about Scottsdale’s rich history. From Scottsdale innovations to the connection between a breakfast cereal and a resort, you’re sure to learn something new!

Scottsdale Innovation kicks off the series this year as we learn how few communities have a legacy of innovation that equals that of Scottsdale. From a revolutionary solid waste removal invention to the founding of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, Scottsdale’s history is full of creative solutions. Learn about the people and controversies behind these innovations.

This special event features Scottsdale’s Bruce Wall, citizen advisor, and Dan Worth, director of public works. Together, they will guide attendees through our city’s most notable achievements as we commemorate the 60th anniversary of Scottsdale’s Solid Waste Services. Discover the rich tapestry of stories and the visionary individuals behind Scottsdale’s innovative spirit.

All ages welcome! Treats available while supplies last.

Please RSVP to help us plan for food and beverage quantities.
