Home Upcoming Events Prickly Pear Festival


The Superior Chamber of Commerce is planning its fourth annual Prickly Pear Festival for Saturday and Sunday, August 20-21, 2016 in the mining community of Superior.

A fun filled day awaits those attending with desert hikes on the mountainside at dawn; a pancake breakfast with prickly pear syrup; vendors selling prickly pear food and wares at the old high school; the Cactus Lounge with art and entertainment and prickly pear beer, wine and margaritas; talks and demonstrations on how to use the ubiquitous prickly pear; lunchtime menus in the local restaurants featuring the fruit or the pad; food trucks with more delicacies; topped off by an evening Edible Desert Dinner and entertainment.

You can find everything from prickly pear fudge to cookies as well as artwork, photography, and jewelry featuring the cactus. This is the season when the desert blooms red with the succulent fruit, so if you want to learn how to use a new treat, join us for a day full of fun!

Admission is free. Tickets for the dinner and entertainment are $35 and are being sold by the Chamber of Commerce 520-689-0200.
