Yuma loves a good fiesta or festival! Many annual events fill the calendar with community celebrations like the Yuma County Fair and the Dorothy Young Memorial Electric Light Parade. There’s live music and performing arts, a beautiful hot air balloon festival, as well as chances to see vintage cars or an air show. Make it a weekend around popular Yuma events, or plan to stay longer and take in several festivities like the Medjool Date Festival or popular Tunes & Tacos, complete with a Taco King and Salsa Queen!
