The event formally known as Tale of Two Cities Festival has evolved…

Tale of Two Cities began with a partnership seven years ago between the Cities of Avondale and Goodyear celebrating Arizona's Centennial.  The event quickly changed into a cultural celebration that included a parade and festival.  This year we are pleased to continue the event now in it's 2nd year known as:

CulturePOP - the ultimate Block Party!

Join the party and show your community support by partnering with the Cities of Avondale and Goodyear and Estrella Mountain Community College, as they present CulturePOP Block Party!
