A Second Glittering Oasis Has Been Revealed For Phoenix Candlelight Concerts

Now there are two unique escapes where you can experience the magic.

We’ve already gotten a glimpse of the incredibly enchanting Candlelight series in Phoenix – a glittering one at that. Now, organizers have announced a second venue to host these magical evenings, adding yet another Phoenix oasis to the mix. This one’s by the water, but not where you would think! The Candlelight series’ newest open-air venue is none other than the Phoenix Zoo!

The Phoenix Zoo

The Phoenix Zoo was founded by Robert Maytag and opened in 1962. It operates on a massive stretch of land spanning 125 acres, making it the largest privately-owned, non-profit zoo in the U.S. It’s the newest venue to be added to Fever’s Candlelight series and is a total oasis – for humans and animals alike – located right in Papago Park.

But don’t worry, you won’t be seated next to any tigers or zebras during the show. These intimate concerts are set to take place in a serene setting alongside the zoo’s main lake, where you’ll enjoy a beautiful evening under the stars. This unique venue offers a total sensorial experience, as you relax to the sounds of classical music completely surrounded by nature. And of course, complimented by a sea of glowing candles.

Guests will enjoy performances like Vivaldi’s Four Seasons at the Phoenix Zoo’s Lakeside venue, and in the spring, guests will also be able to enjoy performances of Mozart’s Best Works, Jazz nights with Sinatra and Nat King Cole, and even special shows featuring the scariest and grooviest Halloween songs! 

The Croft Downtown

The Croft Downtown offers guests a different type of escape. Located in the Warehouse District, this Phoenix oasis will transport you to the magical world of Alice In Wonderland, the inspiration behind this venue. Performances will take place in The Green, the venue’s lush outdoor patio framed by a whimsical keyhole and adorned with beautiful bistro lighting.

This venue will host an array of shows, from classical to jazz. Performances will highlight classical composers, jazz legends, as well as a special a cappella tribute to female voices. Shows are scheduled throughout the winter and into the spring, with dates extending into June.

So get ready, Phoenix! These stunning spaces, soon to be bathed in candlelight, are sure to be a treat for your eyes and your ears.

Don’t miss out on an incredible night out and get your tickets here.
