7 of the Best Annual Events in Estrella

In our master-planned community in Goodyear, AZ, we love hosting get-togethers. We’re a little bit like that friend you have who is always hosting pool parties and wine nights at their house. Except we invite the whole community and occasionally the greater public to attend.

Estrella signature events are ones we do every year. They’re a part of Estrella tradition that residents plan on … and love inviting their friends to. We hope you’ll join us for one (or all!) of our community’s signature events.

Biannual Tour of Homes

When you’re looking to buy a new home, you’re not just shopping for a home design — you are also shopping for a community, one that has the amenities and vibe you want. At our biannual Tour of Homes, it’s easy to do just that. Not only will dozens of model homes, custom home sites, quick move-ins, and resale homes be open for viewing during this two-day event, but attendees can also tour the amenities at our three residents clubs, 72 acres of lakes, award-winning golf club, and 50+ miles of paths and trails. There are often community events happening at the same time as Tour of Homes, giving attendees the opportunity to get a feel for the community as well.

• When: 3rd weekend of every March and October

Goodyear Lakeside Music Festival

Music lovers flock to the Estrella Lakeside Amphitheater each spring for the Goodyear Lakeside Music Festival (GLMFest).

With temperate weather and gorgeous wild flowers, spring is life in Estrella at its finest. Another reason to celebrate the season is the annual Spring Fling event.

The theme changes each year — past years have included Candy Land and Alice in Wonderland — and the party boasts tons of family-friendly activities.
