A winter wonderland has arrived at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick this December. “Enchant,” presented by the Hallmark Channel, is one of the largest holiday-themed light events in the country, with another eight locations in Washington D.C., Texas, Nevada, California and Florida. 

The 10-acre walk-through, which is open until January 1, 2023, features the world’s largest Christmas light maze, with more than 4 million lights; a 100-foot-tall holiday tree; an ice-skating trail; and The Village, a marketplace that features crafts, gifts, winter treats and beverages, as well as a visit from Santa. 

“It’s our first year here at Salt River Fields and we hope to be here for many years to come,” said Ryan Harris, company manager for Enchant Scottsdale. “Enchant has been around since 2017, but this is our inaugural season here in Scottsdale. Enchant is an immersive, one-of-a-kind Christmas event like no other, and its fun for the whole family.”

On Wednesday, November 30, Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community member families were offered free admission. Families came out and enjoyed the Village marketplace, ice skating and more. There was a fun interactive game to find all of Santa’s reindeer in the light maze as well as a number of immersive activities for all ages. 

Adult admission starts at $34, and children’s admission (ages 3-17) is $20. Special experiences (ice skating, an Elf Guide for your group) are available for an additional charge.
