Lake Havasu Upcoming Events

What’s going on in Lake Havasu City? Besides our unique brand of outdoor Arizona activities (boating, hiking, golf and off-roading - to name a few) you’ll find a staggering number of Lake Havasu events to engage your mind, tug your heart strings or stir your soul. We host more than 500 events per year! It’s hard not to find at least one event you will enjoy on any given weekend.

Whether you get your kicks at hot rod shows, balloon festivals, rodeos, dog meets or dinner theatre, there’s always something happening. The most popular Lake Havasu City, Arizona activities include high-octane boat races, fishing tournaments, classic car cruise nights, swap meets and game nights, but that’s only the start. We also have triathlons, concerts, fireworks and oh so much more!

The Lake Havasu Events Calendar – A directory of fun

There’s an air of excitement here in Lake Havasu City, a rush of adrenaline that never dies out. We attribute it to the fact that everyone in the community is involved. We love to share our passion with others. Our schedule of Lake Havasu events is full because our residents enjoy pitching in to volunteer and brighten someone’s day or give back to a worthy cause.

Promoters also understand that Lake Havasu City is a great event venue, and major new events locate themselves here every year. After all, we offer the only beachfront location in Arizona at Lake Havasu State Park. Being located halfway between Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas makes it easy to draw a crowd, and it’s very inexpensive for participants or spectators to stay overnight or longer.

Whatever you’re searching for – family fun, high-energy sporting events, Lake Havasu Spring Break, or a romantic and relaxing evening of movies in the park – there’s a date on our calendar just for you.

Make plans to visit us around one of our special events. Check out our Lake Havasu events calendar below for a full list of upcoming Lake Havasu, Arizona activities, and find fun things to do in Arizona, even if you’re doing nothing more than just passing through and can only spend one night!
