All year long, visitors to Scottsdale are surprised by just how much this city in Arizona has to offer. While it doesn't come close to reaching the level of tourists and travelers that make their way through places like Los Angeles, Miami or New York City, Scottsdale is setting itself up for success with numerous events and festivals for all kinds of people to enjoy. Here's a sampling of what you may have missed out on in the past couple weeks alone:


On Nov 1 and 2, Westworld will be hosting the Scottsdale Ferrari-Maserati Polo Championships which will feature horses and horsepower. In only its third year, it has become the biggest polo event in the country.

Jason Rose of Rose Moser Allyn Public Relations is no stranger to high profile, offbeat happenings. He was the man behind last summer’s "Beat the Heat Race" and is the mover behind the polo championships. Learn More
