Ostrich Festival 2015

Don’t let the name fool you. The 27th Annual Chandler Chamber Ostrich Festival is way more than just ostriches. Sure, they have the ostrich races one would expect at such a festival, but they also have ducks, tigers, and sharks. Oh, and The Birdman from Las Vegas, a high wire motorcycle act, acrobats and contortionists, several musical performances, and more. So come for the ostriches, but stay for everything else going on, starting at 11 a.m. on Sunday, March 15 at 2250 South McQueen Road in Chandler. General admission tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and youths, and free for children 4 and under at the gate. Purchase discounted passes at Fry’s Food Stores, the Chandler Chamber of Commerce, or online at ostrichfestival.com.
