Sunday Cruise In at Phil’s Filling Station

Sundays are a “Car Guy” (and Gal) spectacular at Phil’s Filling station.  One of the Valley’s biggest collector shows happens every Sunday between October and April in the parking lot of Phil’s Filling Station Diner.  The show often sports more than 100 cars, from customized Street Rods of the 50’s to classic restored cars from the turn of the century. Like Chrome?  Craving a Chocolate Shake and Burger?  This blast from the past is a great way walk down memory lane; with a reasonable meal (Phil’s menu has more than 60 classic diner items, so Sunday dinner can wait too!).

Photo Op’s with the Town’s Spectacular Public Art Collection

The Town of Fountain Hills Public Art collection provides at least 100 settings to take amazing photos with your seasonal visitors.  The sculptures in the Community Center area provide a fun background to creative photos that are a big step above the boring, “Say Cheese” group pictures we all have in our collections.  The area has on-site parking and is handicapped-accessible, making it a snap to snap festive pictures and enjoy a major part of the collection in close proximity.

Kids love to clown around with the whimsical pieces at the entrance to the library, but there are opportunities to capture the majesty of our mountains and the fountain as well. Taking in the docent-led tours are organized around the collection in the Community Center area and Fountain Park are a wonderful way to showcase the rich Cultural resources of Fountain Hills. Docent-led tours are given each week from October to April as well.

Early Morning Art Walk Docent Tour – 9-10:30.  Centennial Circle in front of Library/Museum.  Mid-Day Art Walk, Fountain Park – 11-12:30


  1. Gallery Hopping/Art on the Avenue

Every Thursday, during Art on the Avenue, an impressive gathering of artisans bring their one of-a-kind creations to the Avenue of the Fountains.  Some of the art work is southwestern-themed, and many photograph, cards, paintings and home décor items feature our breath-taking mountains.  Gift items abound, as well as beautiful items to bring life and color to everyday use.

These local restaurants have outdoor seating to boot…just one more way to showcase the pure pleasure of living in Fountain Hills.
