It’s a mistake for anyone to characterize Fountain Hills as a retirement community. From the beginning, great effort was made to provide amenities for children and young families. Now, more than ever, Fountain Hills is a great place to call “home” for young adults and the young at heart.
Bone Haus Brewing and Grapeables are great places to grab a drink and enjoy live music. Bone Haus also frequently hosts “Ranger Amy” who gives talks on critters of the Sonoran Desert, including a recent owl release in partnership with Liberty Wildlife. And the award-winning Fountain Hills Theater has spectacular shows year-round, with an active youth group for families and kids of all ages.
COMMUNITY AND SPORTING EVENTS
Fountain Hills packs a punch when it comes to high-energy events all year long. Concours in the Hills car show, Basant Mela Kite Festival, Dark Sky Festival, Irish Fountain Fest, Fourth at the Fountain, Oktoberfest, Halloween in the Hills, Stroll in the Glow, and two huge art festivals are all free events , ensuring you never lack something fun for your calendar.
The Fountain Hills Young Community group brings young adults and the young at heart together for community engagement, social connection, and active lifestyle events. From kayaking trips to karaoke competitions to community fundraisers, this group is a great way to meet people and plan fun events.
The Fountain Hills Leadership Academy is an 8-week program that gives participants a deep immersion into the inner workings of our community. Graduates leave as better-informed who are poised to step into a variety of volunteer and leadership roles.
OUTDOOR ACTIVE LIFESTYLE
Whether you like to go solo or participate in organized groups, you’ll love the convenience of nearby trails and routes for hiking, biking, and running. Water sports and off-roading can be enjoyed at nearby Saguaro Lake. Astronomy enthusiasts love the monthly Star Parties and the annual Dark Sky festival. Grab a disc and try out the disc golf course at Fountain Park, the site of two national disc golf tournaments.
The Fountain Hills Chamber of Commerce offers young business professionals and entrepreneurs tremendous opportunities for networking and growth education. The Fountain Hills Vendor Venue provides space for home-based businesses to hold classes, workshops, small conferences, and more as a co-working space.
