Prix fixe feasts for this year include elegant three-course options at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain, a Gurney’s Resort & Spa, Royal Palms Resort and Spa and El Chorro.


Bunny Pics & Easter Egg Hunts 

Easter Kids

The Easter Bunny is hopping into town for photo ops with the littles! Capture the Bunny Magic at Scottsdale Fashion Square’s Palm Court where the Easter Bunny is sitting for photos through April 8 (pro tip: reserve your session online in advance!). Get egg-cited for treats during Scottsdale Quarter’s Hide & Peep Scavenger Hunt! Youngsters can search for colorful eggs that unlock the secret location to a bag of treats. Music, face painting and balloon-twisting fun add to the adventure!
