Chandler Ostrich Festival 2022: Dates, ticket prices, concerts

The 32nd Chandler Ostrich Festival will bring together Flo Rida, the Beach Boys, Nelly, Walker Hayes, fair rides and, of course, ostriches this month in metro Phoenix.

That’s a lot (and quite an eclectic bunch), but that is because the event will take place over two weekends — March 11-13 and 17-20 — for the first time. This year also marks the first Ostrich Festival since 2019 due to the pandemic.

Longtime residents might remember the festival for its ostrich races, which garnered multiple protests. However, the Chandler Ostrich Festival has not hosted races since 2019. Instead, there are ostrich viewing areas, musical performances, fair food and rides.

Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s event.
