Queen Creek’s Agritainment Destinations Offer Fall Events
Queen Creek’s agritainment industry is continuing to grow, with two signature events happening this fall. The fun and exciting events draw both residents and visitors, resulting in a positive economic benefit for the community, but also increasing traffic in the southeast area of Town. The following routes are suggested for Queen Creek Olive Mill’s Garlic Festival and Schnepf Farm’s Pumpkin and Chili Party.
The Garlic Festival at the Olive Mill is on Saturday, Sept. 30 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; visit QueenCreekOliveMill.com for more information. The Pumpkin and Chili Party at Schnepf Farms begins on Thursday, Oct. 5 and takes place every Thursday through Sunday throughout October; visit SchnepfFarms.com for more information about the event.
Additional community events can cause an increase in traffic, especially in areas with construction. Please plan ahead and allow extra time for travel. To receive weekly traffic alerts for construction happening in Queen Creek, sign up for eNotifications on the Town’s website.
