Fall at Wickenburg Ranch is an exciting affair, and this year is set to be no different. From fall-specific events to outdoor pursuits, there’s a whole range of experiences waiting to be explored and enjoyed.
We can’t wait to show you what Wickenburg Ranch has in store for you this October. To give you a taste of what’s to come, here are some of the key events lined up for the coming months.
Interested in a game of golf? Wickenburg is just the place, boasting excellent golf courses and a climate that makes it a top choice during the cooler autumn season. October is when new grass begins to flourish, with overseeding already in progress at Li’l Wick, Big Wick, and the clubhouse turf areas. Our golf courses are at their greenest and provide more varied playing experiences than ever during this season.
Wickenburg’s stunning desert environment is the perfect stage for outdoor activities, with a panorama of peaks and valleys stretching across the horizon. The mild autumn weather and 20 miles of interconnected trails make the Wickenburg Ranch a hub for those seeking adventure. Spend hours discovering the area, observing desert wildlife, and taking in the stunning views of the Wickenburg Mountains.
Our challenging Pioneer Trails will take you across incredible vistas, presenting stunning views at each twist and turn of the path. If a leisurely ride is more your speed, Wickenburg’s paved streets offer you the opportunity to appreciate the natural beauty of the high Sonoran Desert while pursuing a healthier lifestyle.
Walk to Boot Breast Cancer
Each October, the Wickenburg Ranch team actively contributes to the battle against breast cancer through their participation in the yearly Wickenburg Walks to Boot Breast Cancer race. This event serves as a fundraiser for both Wickenburg and its neighboring rural regions, aiming to gather financial support. Individuals spanning various age groups take pleasure in a leisurely stroll through the historic downtown area of Wickenburg and the picturesque Simpson’s Ranch. Attendees have the option to select from a 1-mile walk, a 5k walk, or engage in a virtual walking experience.
Desert Caballeros Western Museum Tour & Lunch
The specially guided tour of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum will include the upstairs art displays as well as the downstairs history of Wickenburg and a peek into the past. Members will spend some time browsing the gift shop full of unique items that aren’t found anywhere else. Following the tour, we will return to Wickenburg Ranch for a special lunch prepared just for us including Bison Meatloaf Sliders, Summer Salad, house chips, and a Peach Cobbler for dessert.
October wouldn’t be complete without Oktoberfest! This year’s event will feature our cherished traditional German dinner party. Members will enjoy authentic German cuisine while dancing to the lively polka music performed by the Phoenix Polka Club. Against the backdrop of a stunning sunset, it will be a truly delightful occasion that brings our community together.
FORD vs FERRARI
Oscar winner in 2 categories in 2019. This film tells the true story of U.S. automotive designer, Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) & fearless Brit race car driver, Ken Miles (Christian Bale) as they battle “corporate” & physics in an attempt to build a revolutionary car for Ford. Together, they competed with the race cars of Enzo Ferrari at Le Mans in 1966.
The ’56tees bring back to life one of the purest forms of American Roots music and lays it down with style. From blues-tinged, hip-shakin’ rockers like “Johnny B. Goode” and “Shake, Rattle & Roll” to the sultry, starlight ballads of “Love Me” or “Unchained Melody”, Bret’s silky-smooth, powerful vocals make every female swoon and the fellas want to run out and race with their buddies for pinks!
