PHOENIX — The city of Scottsdale is kicking off a monthlong celebration of events to commemorate the city’s 70th anniversary this June.

The inaugural “June Days” series invites locals and visitors to Old Town Scottsdale for events, concerts, art walks, fitness and more.

Businesses, retailers and restaurants will also participate in the festivities with deals and special activities, according to a press release.

“June Days celebrates the very best Scottsdale has to offer our residents every day as well as pleasing our out-of-town visitors,” Mayor David Ortega said in the release.

“There is so much to see and do right in the heart of Old Town throughout the month — something for everyone.”

Throughout June, people can enjoy summer concerts at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, special rates on services and packages at designated local hotels, performances at Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts, craft workshops at The Merchantile of Scottsdale, yoga classes and more.
