What is the best way to dress for Pumpkin Fest #AtThePrincess?

Pumpkin Fest at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is a casual, family-oriented environment. We suggest you dress comfortably, wear good walking shoes and check the local weather report before you leave to plan well for the evening. During fall nights, it sometimes cools off where a light jacket or wrap might be needed. Review all of our information above to prepare for a fun-filled visit to the Princess! Ensuring that our events are family friendly is an important part of the Fairmont experience. In that spirit, we ask you to use your discretion and common sense when choosing attire.

•Costume masks may be worn by Guests 14 years of age or younger as long the mask does not cover the entire face and eyes are visible.

•COVID-19 protective masks: Event attendees may wear masks for protection and/or medical purposes, but they are not mandatory for this outdoor event.

•Clothing that does not display objectionable material, including obscene language or graphic imagery.
