Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the large crowd sizes present at each event, the Rec Centers have cancelled this year’s Spring Fest and Spring Arts and Crafts Fair.

Held every spring, the Spring Fest event sells out Beardsley Park to the tune of about 2,400 patrons every year. With such a large crowd size, combined with the need to make decisions ahead of time due to contract agreements, the decision has been made to cancel the event for the safety and wellbeing of Sun City West residents and RCSCW staff.

Refunds will be given to those who purchased tickets for Spring Fest. Please expect to receive a phone call sometime over the next few weeks as the refund process begins. Also note that refunds will only be given to the original ticket buyer.

The Spring Arts and Crafts Fair, a popular event for Sun City West’s arts and crafts clubs to showcase their creations to the community, has also been cancelled due to the large crowd size the event draws. The Village Store continues to sell these one-of-a-kind items. The store is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
