2022 Theme: Back in the Saddle

Our Parade Committee is made up of 100% volunteers who dedicate countless hours to working on keeping the 68-year-old tradition going. We are committed to doing our best to make sure our entries, community, local businesses and spectators can enjoy the event and thrive for years to come.

We are excited to have you interested in our event!

We encourage any member in our community to get involved.

The Parade has grown over the last few years, so we needed to make some adjustments and increase entry fees to be able to keep the tradition going.

We are limited in Staging space and length of our Parade and can only accommodate 125 total Entries.

What this may mean is we will be on a first come first serve basis. If you would like to be involved in our event, then get your applications in ASAP!

Staging Information will be sent the Monday before the event, Instructions on where to access staging area will be included, please follow parking instructions as your staging area may have changed since prior year.

Scripts! Scripts! Scripts!

Super important we keep them short and sweet 75 words max and equally important to get them in WITH the application.

Thank You and see you soon!

The Scottsdale Parada del Sol Parade and Trail’s End Festival is actively monitoring the incidence of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in our region. We have been asked how COVID-19 may impact our Parade and Festival on February 5th, 2022. We will be following guidance from local health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding large gatherings, including CDC recommendations on preventing the spread of COVID-19.

At this time, our event, The Scottsdale Parada del Sol Parade and Trail’s End Festival will take place as planned. However, with the event being in February of 2022 we will be updating everyone as new guidance may be rolled out in the next months leading up to the event.

We will be posting updates to our website starting in mid-November.

Safety Protocols will be in place and followed per City and State Ordinances. We will have these protocols available to all our sponsors, vendors, volunteers, participants, and attendees no later than February 1st, 2022.

If the circumstances are such that we need to cancel the event, all sponsorship funds, entry fees, vendor fees will be reimbursed no later than February 1st 2022.

Thank you,
