The free event is designed to honor and provide a fun day for special needs children and their families. All admission, the fair, and the food are a gift of the Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Club.

PARKING:  We ask that you drop everyone at the park with the items you need for the day.  Drive to St Barnabas of the Desert, 6715 N Mockingbird Ln, Paradise Valley, AZ 85253.

Park in the North Lot.  We will have two 15 passenger vans that will return you to the park.  It is less than a one mile trip.  We are unable to transport car seats, wheel chairs, etc. so please drop your passengers at the park before you go to Saint Barnabas.  It is necessary that we do as much off-site parking as possible as the retailers across the street will not allow parking during their business hours.

The event provides games with prizes, hot dogs, chips, ice cream, pop corn, and beverages for all.
