When it comes to live music and entertainment, some would call it the Nashville of Arizona; we call it Cave Creek. The town is quickly becoming a valley favorite for all types of evening entertainment featuring all genres of music from original country to pop cover bands. You can often find a solo guitarist with a mic at local open mic night or just playing some background music during the dinner hour. Pandemic update: Although many types of events are not currently allowed, many Cave Creek venues are featuring live music or entertainment that can be safely enjoyed from socially distanced seating. Please check individual websites for details and thank you for supporting live entertainment!! Also, please be patient as all events are subject to change at this time.
Additionally, there is live bull riding two nights per week at the Buffalo Chip Saloon where you can see both professionals and amateurs trying to hang on for an eight second ride – UPDATE: Bull riding was temporary halted during the pandemic but it is back at least one day per week now – check their website for details.
Country dance lessons are a great activity and are conducted on various days at Harold’s.
The Cave Creek Rodeo Days is an annual event – more information can be found on our Rodeo page.

Everyone loves ice cream and nobody does it better than The City Creamery in Cave Creek! The Cave Creek Visitor’s Guide publisher, Dale Samar, has teamed up with Chelsea Flaherty from The City Creamery to help raise money for the Foothills Food Bank on Tuesday, March 2nd from 5-7pm. Please come out to support all the businesses in the Prickly Pear Plaza and have some of the best ice cream in the country to help our local food bank! “I’ve been a regular at The City Creamery since they opened so I wanted to make sure everyone in town comes out to enjoy ice cream the way I do,” said Samar. “It’ll be a great evening to sit outside and enjoy the sunset along with some delicious, hand-crafted ice cream in Cave Creek”
