As the season begins to change, fall’s arrival is also signaled by popular annual events in the master-planned community of Summerlin®.  Returning this year after a 2020 hiatus are two beloved community events at Downtown Summerlin® – the Summerlin Festival of Arts presented by Las Vegas Review Journal, Oct. 9 and 10, and Parade of Mischief presented by SelectHealth®, running every Friday and Saturday through October. The PGA TOUR’s FedExCup Shriners Children’s Open is set for Oct. 4-10 at TPC Summerlin and will allow fans this year. 

The frightfully fun, family-friendly Parade of Mischief presented by SelectHealth® will fill the streets of Downtown Summerlin with mischievous mayhem Oct. 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29 and 30 starting at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public and takes place along Park Centre Drive in the heart of the popular shopping, dining and entertainment destination.  With a cast of more than 30 local kids, Parade of Mischief features dancing zombies, ghosts, witches, wizards, wild creatures, a rockin’ dead skeleton band and more.

The Summerlin® Festival of Arts returns to Downtown Summerlin® Oct. 9-10. The hallmark, outdoor festival features more than 100 fine artists and craftsmen from Southern Nevada and surrounding states, each carefully selected by a jury of local art experts. Mediums include oil, watercolor, pottery, sculpture, photography, glass and jewelry – all in a mix of contemporary and classic designs- to offer something for every taste. The Festival runs daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Parade of Mischief was a big hit in 2019 and we can’t wait to bring it back,” said Halee Mason, marketing director, Downtown Summerlin. “We’re also looking forward to hosting the Summerlin Festival of Arts on the Lawn. This is the Festival’s 25th year, and we know many in our community are once again looking forward to all the colorful, creative and beautiful creations from many of our region’s most talented artists.” 

And finally, the eyes of the golf world once again return to Summerlin with the 2021 Shriners Children’s Open at TPC Summerlin, Oct. 4-10.  The PGA TOUR FedEx-Cup event, won last year by Martin Laird, was played without fans.  Both tournament officials and players are looking forward to the return of fans, adding to the excitement of all the action.
