The Ostriches are Coming!

Friday, March 13 –Sunday, March 15


The Chandler Ostrich Festival began in 1989. The event has grown to become one of the premier festivals in the southwest, with 250,000 to 350,000 people attending the 3-day celebration each spring. The popular festival is based on Chandler’s colorful early history of ostrich ranching, which included raising these unusual creatures for their stylish and expensive plumes.

The festival takes place at Tumbleweed Park, on the southwest corner of McQueen and Germann roads, featuring live ostrich races and ostrich-themed activities, national and regional entertainment, carnival midway, spectacular food, upscale arts & crafts, a Saturday morning parade and much more.

Outreach Opportunity!
250,000-350,000 people! What an opportunity for First Baptist Chandler to reach out to the Chandler community with the Good News of Jesus Christ. For the past several years we have had a booth at the festival offering information about our church, tracts, praying, giving out Bibles.

How can YOU be involved?
This is a fun event! If you think this is something you would like to be involved in, or maybe you have previously volunteered and would like to do so again, please contact Hernand. Hernando is coordinating this event with our Men’s Ministry.
