La Puesta del Sol is Spanish for “The Setting Sun” and you’ll see why right from the start. Stunning 360º views from La Puesta’s incomparable vantage points, perched atop a cactus-dotted mesa, provide unlimited vistas of Arizona’s spectacular sunsets. Try a mouth-watering BBQ menu paired with Country music and cowboy games and experience an “Arizona Luau” like no other. End the night with a fireworks finale and you’ll be sure to leave your guests with a memory that will last a lifetime.
Without a doubt, the most unique venue in Arizona. La Puesta del Sol features retractable sidewalls offering indoor/outdoor dining for up to 500 guests, Full Bar & Catering Options, Dirty Doc’s Saloon, Olde Tyme Photo Parlour, Fire Pits, Stage, Open air barbeques and more. Minimum 100 guests, maximum 500 under cover, 1,600 inside/outside seating.
The Society of Government Meeting Professionals of Arizona (SGNPAZ) enjoyed a beautiful evening at La Puesta and Fort McDowell Adventures in July, 2015.
The group was staying at the nearby WeKoPa Resort where we boarded open air Pink Jeeps for an exciting ride up to the La Puesta hilltop. On the way, we encountered 3 wild horses, several cows and a coyote crossed the road! Our jeeps arrived just before sunset to the impressive old adobe La Puesta building. Cheerful cowboys served prickly pear margaritas and an attractive buffet of colorful chips and homemade salsa and guacamole. The meeting planners were given a scenic tour of the La Puesta and Rosa’s House and surrounding buildings. This large open air Hacienda has the potential to host large or small groups. Our group of 47 enjoyed posing with the saguaro cactus, a horse & rider, the 560 foot fountain of Fountain Hills and enjoyed a fantastic sunset. I would highly recommend Fort McDowell Adventures for your outdoors event. This is Scottsdale best kept secret and a very special place with tons of Arizona atmosphere! The event staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and our group just loved the outdoor experience! I highly recommend Julie Solliday to coordinate your event.
Thanks for having SGMPAZ out to the beautiful Fort McDowell Adventures!
