Throughout the year, Tonto Bar & Grill hosts several events to bring together family and friends and foster a sense of community. From our popular Balloon Festival to our spring concert series to our special holiday dinner celebrations, we invite you to come out and join us for the good times. We also offer events at our sister restaurant, Cartwright’s Sonoran Ranch House, just up the street. Our calendar lists events happening at both restaurants and in the neighborhood.

Remember to visit Tonto Bar & Grill when you are in Cave Creek/Carefree enjoying all of the wonderful activities the area has to offer, including golfing, shopping, hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, bird watching, sightseeing and attending festivals.
