The Cascabel Community Fair is a unique celebration of rural Arizona beauty, history, hospitality, diversity and artistic expression in an awe-inspiring outdoor setting.
Cascabel is located along the banks of the beautiful San Pedro River about an hour and a half drive from Tucson. Take I-10 through Benson to exit 306. Head north through Pomerene. Follow the signs for 20 more miles on a scenic country road. The last five miles are unpaved, so take it easy and enjoy the scenery. Click here to see the location on a map and to get directions.
Listen to live music− Way Out West, The San Pedro Sand Trouts, Vince and Friends, and Ringnell Roundabouts while you enjoy many fine artisans displaying their work in clay, wrought iron, fiber, wood, jewelry, leather, photography, painting, and more.
The Cascabel Community Center, the Cascabel Community Garden, and the Volunteer Fire Department will serve homemade lunches and desserts and hold a dollar raffle for a multitude of prizes, including a locally made quilt.
There are three very different sites all within pleasant walking distance. Handicap parking is available. The Oasis Bird Sanctuary conducts scheduled tours of their exotic birds and sells products that support animal rescue efforts. Akasha Center of Light offers original paintings by the resident artist and unique Christmas decorations. Cascabel Clayworks, a cottage industry and homestead established in 1970, will host an open house. You will also enjoy touring the wide variety of locally made products and fresh farm produce displayed under the mesquite canopy.
There is a fourth stop you won't want to miss−− Visit our friends at Forever Home Donkey Rescue on your way back home.

Please remember, rural Arizona still has gravel roads. You'll be travelling five miles beyond the pavement. Take your time, keep the dust down, and enjoy the scenery. We look forward to seeing you and sharing some traditional rural neighborhood fun.
