Events & Entertainment

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.  Janey’s offers live music 7 days per week!

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.

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.
