Most communities will tell you there’s always something happening within their boundaries—no matter what time of year you visit. At Wickenburg Ranch, it’s no hollow claim. And we’ve got the calendar of events to prove it.
Here, activities abound—from festivals to fundraisers and holiday parties to an endless array of culture, fun and excuses to socialize. Wickenburg is truly the quintessential golf community that offers so much more than golf and that caters to every passion, pastime and hobby. Whatever you enjoy in life, you’ll find it here.
Want examples? Here’s a short listing of just some of the highlights happening through the remainder of the year:
You don’t have to be German to put on one of Arizona’s most authentic and unforgettable Octoberfest celebrations.

Have an appreciation for fine handmade gifts and exceptional talent? Every October, our community’s Holiday Bazaar gives residents and visitors a helpful headstart on the shopping season with a wide assortment of wooden toys and sculptures, jewelry, pottery, photography and so much more—all crafted by our local community of artists.

Walk to Boot Breast Cancer
How far would you go to support the fight against breast cancer? How about a scenic five kilometers (or just 3.1 miles)?

And if the distance falls outside your comfort zone, please take a shorter walk to the event course to cheer on the participants.

Let’s kick off the holiday season by trimming the tree together. Join us for appetizers, drink specials and a fun night of decorating the beautiful Wickenburg Ranch Christmas trees—in the company of new friends and neighbors.
Everyone knows it’s better to give than receive—especially when children are involved. Created to provide holiday gifts to kids in the Wickenburg Unified School District, Wickenburg Ranch is a proud partner of the Wrangler Wishes program. Stop by the Concierge desk to pick up a snowman tag with a child’s age, sizes and Holiday wish.
It’s a tradition of epic holiday proportions. Each year, the Market Place and Jake’s Spoon are transformed into giant brunch stations and Santa slides down the Grand Living Room chimney to delighted reactions from everyone in attendance. Don’t miss a minute of Santa Brunch at Wickenburg Ranch.
A holiday parade at Wickenburg Ranch is unlike any other. Here instead of floats, our parade is filled with carts—golf carts, specifically. Only these ones are festively decorated by groups and individuals. And at the end, awards are given out for best overall cart and best group concept. Join us. And experience a holiday event that’s distinctively Wickenburg.
And there’s a lot more where those came from.
There you have it—a sampling of a year full of events at Wickenburg Ranch. Trust us, there are many, many more. And every one of them adds a little bit to what makes this place into a genuine community.
