Parada Del Sol Historic Parade

With 70 years of history under its belt, the Scottsdale Parada del Sol Historic Parade and Trail’s End Festival rides into town featuring more than 125 lively entries including colorful floats, mounted horse-riders, horse-drawn carriage, school marching bands, wagons and stagecoaches representing many cultures from Mexican to Native American to Arabian to Western. Immediately following the parade, the Historic Old Town District transforms into a massive Western-style block party with a kids’ zone, food trucks, merchandise vendors, and multiple stages with live entertainment including concerts from today’s popular bands to traditional performers.

Parada del Sol events will be taking place rain or shine.
