In honor of the big announcement (and #TBT), we’re reflecting on some of our favorite memories from last year’s Ostrich Festival.

The Stars of the Show

Ostriches

What’s not to love about these big beautiful birds? The Ostrich Festival wouldn’t be complete without the stars of the show: The ostriches themselves. Last year’s guests had a blast watching these animals race across Tumbleweed Park. We can’t wait to see them do it again this year!

Carnival Rides

Each year, the Ostrich Festival brings family friendly entertainment to the Valley with an assortment of carnival rides. Whether it’s high speed thrills, funhouses or a relaxing trip around the ferris wheel, the Ostrich Festival has something for everyone.

Food and Treats

One of our favorite parts of the Ostrich Festival is all of the wonderful vendors who come out to sell food and treats. How often do you get the chance to eat funnel cake and cotton candy? The Ostrich Festival is the perfect place to indulge your sweet tooth!

Mayor’s Fun Run

Before treating yourself to all of the delicious snacks available at the Ostrich Festival, get in some great exercise at the Mayor’s Fun Run! Last year’s participants had a blast walking and running across the track with their friends and family. Don’t miss this year’s run, taking place on Saturday, March 4.

Musical Performances
