Chandler Ostrich Festival 2012
March 10, 2012 by staff
Chandler Ostrich Festival 2012, Festivalgoers get into the swing of things at the 2004 Chandler Ostrich Festival, expected to draw crowds again this year.
Ostriches may not be able to fly, but they’re pretty darn good runners.
See for yourself at this weekend’s Chandler Ostrich Festival.
The event hosts daily ostrich races, when the birds compete carrying jockeys or pulling chariots.
There are also monkey, reptile and dog shows, a petting zoo, magic and thrill shows, and live ostrich displays. And if you get bored looking at the giant birds, you can try one, literally; ostrich burgers are available on Ostrich Alley, where you’ll also find hand-painted eggs, emu oil and other avian sundries.
Live music from Tonic, Blue Oyster Cult, Marshall Tucker Band, Katie Armiger and a slew of other acts plays all weekend on three stages. Kids can meet Disney Channel actress Olivia Holt 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
Expect also to find carnival games and rides, and vendors selling trinkets, gifts, arts and crafts.
General admission includes races, shows and concerts. Ride passes or wristbands (available at the gate, at Fry’s Food Stores and at Chandler Chamber of Commerce) are required for carnival games and rides.
