Old Town Scottsdale's Canal Convergence 2021
This year (2021) from November 5 - 14 Scottsdale is putting on what they call Canal Convergence. It's full of public art displays and live performances. The event happens along what Scottsdale calls the waterfront district. It's an area of Old Town Scottsdale with walking paths, restaurants and businesses surrounding a large canal. All pictures are from this year's (2021) Canal Convergence. Highly recommend you see it in person :)
It gets crowded, so if you can walk or take an Uber, that's a great idea. If not, I've screen shot maps with the three local parking garages (all are free) and drawn an arrow to the one that I usually park in. You'll turn in just before Barrio Queen and then go under ground to the parking garage. There is also a good amount of free street parking, but when it gets busy most of those spots will be full. The main Cross Streets are Scottsdale Rd & 5th Ave. The area is also known as South Bridge and The Fifth Avenue Shops.
They put on a pretty cool pyrotechnic show over the water called Floom. It's to music and lasts about 3-4 minutes. We found that lots of people grabbed a spot before it started, so be ready for that. You can find the schedule for Floom in a booth on site, or you can get the schedule here:
Some of the art from this year: A few of these are interactive.
Additional information can be found directly with the Canal Convergence website itself.
And should be the primary source of show times etc. just in case they make any changes.
Thanks for stopping by!
