There’s no better place to start your 2017 than Arizona. From “warmer than most” temperatures, to a host of “must-attend” events, visitors from around the world gather in Arizona to start the new year! Here’s a sampling of some amazing Scottsdale AZ attractions that you should consider coming to enjoy!
Collector Car Auctions
From classic cars to muscle machines, January in Arizona is the destination to add to your calendar. It all kicks off and ends with the “Super Bowl” of collector car auctions, Barrett-Jackson. Spanning over 2 weeks, January 14th – 22nd, the entire spectrum of collector automobiles will cross the auction block. Complete with exhibitor and sponsor displays, special previews, test drives, polo matches, galas, “behind the hobby” symposiums and more, Barrett-Jackson is much more than just an auction… it’s the must attend event for serious collectors and enthusiasts alike.
Sharing the spotlight, a host of significant collector car auctions will take place throughout January. These include Russo and Steele (18th – 22nd), RM Sotheby’s (19th – 20th), Gooding and Company (20th – 21st) and Bonhams (19th). Finding that perfect addition to your collection requires that you make your way to Scottsdale this January.
From casual fans, to serious diehards, and everyone in-between, golfers know that Arizona, home to over 300 golf courses, is home to beautiful greens, incredible backdrops and phenomenal weather. And the must attend event? It’s the Waste Management Phoenix Open at the TPC Scottsdale (Jan 30th – Feb 5th). Known as “The Greatest Show on Grass” and “The People’s Open”, it’s the most-attended golf tournament in the world and has gained legendary status for being the most unique stop on the PGA TOUR. Last year’s tournament broke three attendance records, including a PGA TOUR record 618,365 fans for the week. You don’t want to miss the crowds, entertainment, scenery, and of course, the golf, that will be taking place at the TPC this year!
Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show
This Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show, taking place at WestWorld on February 16th – 26th, attracts owners, trainers, breeders and fans from around the world.
