Ak-Chin Pavilion

2121 N. 83rd Ave.
Phoenix, AZ 85035


  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining
Known (and beloved, at least if you liked being outdoors in the summer heat) at various points throughout its two decade lifespan as both Cricket Wireless Pavilion and Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion before settling on its current moniker of Ak-Chin Pavilion in June 2013, this 20,000-seat outdoor venue in west Phoenix hosts huge touring concerts, especially during the, er, warmer months of the year. Its amply sized open-air pavilion roof provides shade to those fortunate enough to possess reserved seating tickets, while general admission types can kick back on the hilltop lawn area with blankets and still have a great views of whatever chart-topping musicians are performing.
