Scottsdale Parada del Sol Volunteers Announce the Postponement of the 67th Parada Del Sol Historic Parade and Trail’s End Festival until 2022
Press Release – (Scottsdale, AZ – January 23, 2021)
“After careful consideration, the 2021 Scottsdale Parada del Sol Parade and Trail’s End Festival has been postponed. “said Parada del Sol Parade Chairman, and Scottsdale Charro Jose Leon. The Parada board has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and agreed that the viability of holding the parade became highly improbable and that the ‘Hats Off to Essential Workers’ theme should be saved until 2022 when this pandemic has been corralled. “We support the difficult decision made by the Parada board and will again be working with them planning the 2022 Parada,” said Dennis Robbins of the Scottsdale Charros.
The Parada was created by Scottsdale community leaders 67 years ago to draw visitors to the dusty Old Town area to create business to small retail stores and hotels. Every year Parada leaders round up their volunteers to plan the details even though most also have full-time jobs. In 2018, these teams were honored by the Arizona Governor’s Tourism travel professionals for exceptional efforts to plan this vibrant, volunteer-driven event and the Public Relations Society of America Phoenix Chapter recognized them with a prestigious Copper Anvil Award.
“We can’t thank our sponsors enough for bringing this historic event to Scottsdale over many years and look forward to our partnerships again in 2022,” said Leon.
The Annual Parada Del Sol Historic Parade and Trail’s End Festival is just one part of Old Town Scottsdale Western Week. Learn more at ScottsdaleWesternWeek.com.
