Welcome to the best source for schedules and venues for upcoming Glendale events today, this weekend, and in the future. Glendale and Arizona’s West Valley offer a wide range of events, festivals, community gatherings, concerts and more. We look forward to connecting you with the adventure of a lifetime.
MOTHER’S DAY CELEBRATION (SATURDAY, MAY 11)
Poet Robert Browning said “Motherhood: all love begins and ends there.” Show your mother how much you love and appreciate her with a special day in Historic Downtown Glendale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, 2019. The locally-owned businesses in the Catlin Court and Old Towne entertainment districts have created this event to celebrate the treasured love of moms and have planned a perfect day for mothers, daughters, sisters and friends to celebrate. Start your day at the Historic Downtown Glendale Merchants Association Portable Information Booth (fondly nicknamed Mrs. PIB) located at 58th Drive and Palmaire Ave. Downtown Docents will provide event information and provide the event activity list and walking map. You can also paint a rock for the Historic Downtown Glendale Kindness Rocks Project™. There will be fun things to do along the way, including make and take activities, artist demonstrations, fun photo ops, lovely gift ideas at the locally-owned unique boutiques and specialty shops and delicious menu items and sweet treats for your sweet tooth at the iconic eateries. Historic Downtown Glendale businesses support numerous charities throughout the year to give back to the West Valley community. This year’s Mother’s Day charity recipient is the Blue Star Moms of the Southwest Valley which sends care packages monthly to deployed military personnel. Event attendees are encouraged to bring care package donations to the Mrs. PIB portable information booth on event day. A list of needed items is available online at www.VisitDowntownGlendale.com. A few of the requested items include, lip balm, foot care products, brand name Q-tips, AA batteries, paperback novels, crossword/sudoku/puzzle books, individually wrapped hard candy, packs of gum and travel sized Handi-Wipes.

The Mother’s Day Celebration is presented by the Historic Downtown Glendale Merchants Association and the downtown business community.
