Cashless Event

The 32nd Annual Ostrich Festival is a cashless event. You will be presented a wristband upon entry that must be used at all vendors, bars and beer trucks for purchases. Visit to activate your wristband or scan a QR code at the event.

We highly recommend linking you credit card to your wristband account. Cash can be loaded onto it at a wristband reload tent but is NON-REFUNDABLE.

The Festival

The Ostrich Festival is part of Chandler’s recent history, but it is based on the colorful early history of ostrich ranching, which included raising these unusual creatures within the city limits. Check out some highlights of the festival that’s dedicated to the culture and nostalgia of these ostriches.
