In Arizona we get to enjoy a little fun in the sun while much of the country freezes. Having lunch outside on the lawn at a free concert is a bonus, and entirely do-able at the weekly Sunday A’Fair shows at the Scottsdale Civic Center Park. Entering their 27th season, these A’Fairs showcase local musical talent, along with arts-and-crafts fairs and children’s events. Food will even be available for those forgoing the picnic basket. Featured performers January 26 are The Cal Tjader Tribute Band, performing the vibe master’s passionate music of the Caribbean, Cuba, and Latin America from noon to 1:30 p.m., and the Alice Tatum Quartet mixing it up with jazz standards, ballads and dance numbers from 2 to 4 p.m.
Bask in an afternoon of music under the sun at the Scottsdale Civic Center Park, 7380 East Second Street. Admission is free. Visit www.scottsdaleperformingarts.org or call 480-874-4694.
