The Recreation Centers of Sun City West has canceled its lineup of fall special events as COVID-19 uncertainty continues to plague the state.

Although Arizona’s statistics regarding COVID have been trending in an encouraging direction, RCSCW’s Special Events staff had to make decisions now regarding entertainment and down payments for the fall season. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey still has a statewide mandate in order prohibiting gatherings of more than 50 people, even with physical distancing.

The following is a list of events that have been canceled:

  • Fall Fest (Nov. 5, Sixtiesmania; and Nov. 6, HIFI). This event will not be rescheduled. Refunds will be issued. Those who have tickets can expect a call from the Events Team in the near future.
  • Concerts in the Park (Oct. 3, Faded Jeans; Oct. 10, Rhythm Edition; and Oct. 17, Johnny K & Kompany)
  • Movies in the Park (Oct. 4, Jo Jo Rabbit); Oct. 11 (Midway); and Oct. 18, Knives Out. Staff is working on the possibility of planning some drive-in movies. Stay tuned for details!
  • Halloween Dance: Oct. 30, Thaddeus Rose
  • Holiday Show: Dec. 9, Gothard Sisters
  • New Year’s Eve: Dec. 31, Faded Jeans
  • November’s Fall Arts and Crafts Fair and the Friends of the Library Book Sale also have been canceled.

Members are reminded that the Rec Center News went to press before some of these cancelations were made, so old information may appear there. The Curbside Christmas event has not been canceled and is proceeding as planned.
