Originally, the Hohokam people engineered miles of canals across the Phoenix valley from 500 to 1450 AD. Canals diverted water from Salt River to the Hohokam's farm fields. Archaeologists consider this ancient canal network to be one of the largest and most sophisticated irrigation systems ever created using only pre industrial technology. Century’s later, European settlers used the Hohokam's long abandoned, but still standing, canals for their crops. Salt River Project cemented many of the Hohokam canals and uses them to this day delivering water across the region.
Festival hours are 10am to 5pm each day. Admission is $3.00 for adults. A souvenir wine glass together with tasting tickets can be purchased for a $10 fee. Parking is free all weekend and valet parking is available.
