Date Night Idea | Go to a Fall Fair

Today, we are sharing this fall fair-inspired date idea on the blog, featuring our partnership with Toyota USA and driving the 2018 RAV4 Hybrid to our day date at the Arizona State Fair!

Fall is officially here in the desert now that the Arizona State Fair is open!

When Adam and I lived in Massachusetts, we used to have a blast going to the Topsfield Fair and seeing all of the barnyard animals and walking through the warehouses filled with local artwork and shopping at the little kiosks run by local small businesses that sold all kinds of artisan items. Since we moved to Arizona, we have begun a tradition of attending the Arizona State Fair, which unlike the Topsfield Fair has so much more to do and we always end up having better weather here too! 

This week, Adam and I took a spin in the 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and made our way to another adventure at the fair! Today, I'm sharing some of the pictures from our day date at the fair, as well as a resource for Arizona locals with all kinds of information about some of the fairs here in the valley as well as all across the state!

Adam's favorite Toyota we have done a test drive with has been the RAV4, and I was so glad we had a chance to test drive the  2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid this week. We did a bunch of driving all week after our trip to the fair, and I hardly had to put any money into filling the gas tank! When we were on the road and headed to the fair, we plugged the address into the Toyota Integrated Navigation and we were on our way across town to enjoy some rides, pet some sheep, and enjoy some delicious fair food!

We always have a wonderful time at the Arizona State Fair, and although it's just a thirty minutes drive for us, we know it may not be easy for everyone here in Arizona to get to. With that in mind, I've curated a list of different fall fairs you can attend for the remainder of the month all around the state no matter which part of Arizona you live in!

Thanks to Toyota USA for inspiring us to hit the road and test drive the 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and explore the Arizona State Fair for our fall-inspired date night idea!


  1. This is a pretty fine vehicle you have been trying out. My cousin from Delaware comes up with her Toyota Prius (I think) and it costs her around a twenty dollar bill. I always liked fairs and them french fries with ketchup and vinegar have me drooling!

  2. This looks like so much fun! I'm almost ashamed to say that in our 10 years living in NC we have never been to the State Fair! I may need to make sure that changes come next year because I think we would have tons of fun!

  3. I haven't been to a fair in awhile. We are overdue to go. I love your boots!

  4. Fairs are so fun, especially when you can get up close to the animals with your kids. Love your dress!

  5. Awe that seems like so much fun!! What a great idea for a a fun little date night!

  6. oh this sounds great. I love going to the fair but have never been on a date to one. Maybe we could d that some time... me and my hubby,
