Fiesta de los Peñasquitos



Since 1995 the annual “Fiesta de los Peñasquitos” street fair and community parade have become the annual community high-light event in Rancho Penasquitos, attracting over 15,000 people.

“Stepping off” the festivities at 10 am is the community parade which starts at Sun Devil Way and ends at the street fair on Black Mountain Rd (see map below). The parade highlights local community organizations, sports clubs, and school groups. It also features marching bands, including our local military, first responders, other music groups and our local representatives.

The street fair opens at 11 am on Black Mountain Road, between Carmel Mountain and Twin Trails. Featuring over 150 booths, two food courts, food trucks, carnival rides and a car show, there is something for everyone.

Three entertainment stages of live music and performances, dance numbers and demos, showcase professional and local talent. And NEW this year is the addition of the PQ Beer Garden serving brews from local breweries.

On the Main Stage, the Rancho Penasquitos Town Council hosts an Awards Ceremony honoring our local Youth in Community Service, Volunteer of the Year and the Business of the Year, presented by our local dignitaries.

Admission is free and the event is open to the public-tickets for carnival rides can be purchased at the rides.

Riding bicycles and skateboards in the street fair is strictly prohibited.

Pets on a leash are ok but please be aware, the street is very hot and can be harmful to your pets.


Our annual Fiesta features four unique zones: the “family fun zone,” the “adventure zone,” the “community zone,” and the “carnival zone.”  Over 150 vendors provide arts & crafts, food, a Beer Garden, home improvement tips, a rock climbing wall and a Fiesta Fun Tent for children of all ages. There is truly something for everyone!
