January 7, 2017 – set with both permitting entities – SRP and City of Tempe.
2016 is not going to happen – due to the popularity of Tempe, and the large number of events hosted in the area, we cannot find an open date that the City will approve.
We tried March 5, and February 27 and both were rejected due to the large number of events on the same day in Tempe. The City just does not have the Public Safety resources to cover all the events.
So mark your 2017 calendars and look for a bigger and better Papago than you have seen!
Thanks to everyone for their support – especially the folks at Life Time who assisted in the attempt to secure a new date.
