56th Street Festival showcases the Village at Mountain Shadows

Town of Paradise Valley residents are invited to the first-ever 56th Street Festival scheduled 7-10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 26.


The event includes complimentary sticky buns, refreshments, fire trucks, McLarens, entertainment and more.

Scottsdale based and family-owned Cullum Homes Inc., along with the Town of Paradise Valley, Sanctuary Resort, El Chorro and others, are inviting the local community to celebrate the new developments at Mountain Shadows.

For one day only, 56th Street will transform into a pedestrian pathway connecting The Sanctuary Resort to El Chorro Restaurant (between McDonald and Lincoln Drives), showcasing the new Village at Mountain Shadows community and planned Mountain Shadows Resort.

“We are thrilled to celebrate The Village at Mountain Shadows and share the experience with the community,” said Rod Cullum, owner and founder of Cullum Homes.

“Mountain Shadows is such a big part of Paradise Valley’s history, and it’s an honor to be a part of the next chapter. We thought a dramatic event like shutting down this iconic new street would be a fun way to celebrate!”

The festival will start at El Chorro, where participants can enjoy complimentary free sticky buns and refreshments. Paradise Valley Mayor Michael Collins, Vice Mayor Paul Dembow and other distinguished guests will lead the dedication ceremony at 7:30 a.m.

The journey continues along 56th Street with entertainment including steel drum performances, Arabian show horses, McLaren Scottsdale car displays, fire trucks and more. Bikes are available to borrow compliments of the Village at Mountain Shadows. Runners, joggers, rollerbladers are welcome as well.
