The Estrella Mountain Regional Park, managed by Maricopa County Parks & Recreation Department, offers a picturesque backdrop with its pristine desert landscape and stunning views of the Sierra Estrella mountain range. Festival-goers are invited to enjoy free park entry throughout the two-day event, allowing them to explore the park’s hiking trails, grassy picnic areas, and a nature-themed play structure.

Presented by Wildlife for Tomorrow, the Tres Rios Nature Festival promises an amazing FREE event for all ages, featuring a plethora of activities such as birdwatching, archery, guided hikes, encounters with animals, eco-crafts, and nature center presentations by Discover Avondale. Live music presented by Avondale Toyota and a variety of food trucks, including vegan options and desserts, will further enhance the festival experience.

The festival will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both days. To facilitate easy access to the festival grounds, gate fees for the park will be waived during the event. Festival-goers can enter the park via West Vineyard Avenue. WeRIDE vans will be in service for the duration of the event to help festivalgoers to and from their vehicles. Wait at one of our designated shuttle stops and ride the loop around to your car at no cost.
