Canal Convergence is an Outdoor Event

When planning your Canal Convergence experience please plan for being outdoors and walking. The public art installations are located at various points along the Scottsdale Waterfront. Just to see all of the art, visitors will have to walk nearly 3/4 of a mile. However, you may choose to only visit the west side or the east side to reduce the amount of walking if that length is difficult for you.


Paved pathways run along the Arizona Canal, and the entire event is wheelchair accessible. Attendees should be aware that crowd sizes will fluctuate from day to day at the event and this may impede visibility of certain installations for individuals with mobility issues. There are some benches and chair seating is available at the Two Brothers Wine and Beer Garden.

Consider Weather Conditions

Please consult local weather advisories prior to attending the event to wear the appropriate attire for outdoor conditions based on your individual needs and typical November weather conditions in Scottsdale.

Reusable Water Bottles

Support our sustainability efforts by bringing a reusable water bottle and refilling it for free at the event.
