Event description


Western Roundup

Sunday, March 6th, Noon - 4:00 PM

This year’s western-themed carnival is going to be UNFORGETTABLE! Grab your posse and your cowboy hats for some grub, games and fun!

There will be food trucks, face painters, a magician, solar telescope, trackless train, swing & spin, human foosball, 9 hole miniature golf, cake walk, lollipop tree, arts and crafts with the Oro Valley Children's Museum, games, and much, much more!

Purchase your admission ticket for children ages 4 - 17. Ticket includes admission and all activities. Reduced presale prices were available through Friday, March 4th (online and in the office). Tickets are now $20 per child online (or at the carnival, cash or check only).

This year, all payments for food will be made directly to the food trucks/vendors. We will have an Eegees and cotton candy booth, which will accept cash or check only.

In order to make the carnival possible, we ask that you please consider becoming a sponsor by making a tax-deductible donation of $100 or more to help with the costs of entertainment, activities, supplies, and tent rentals. Our banner has been printed. However, it is not to late to sponsor! All sponsors through the date of the carnival will be recognized in follow up materials and on the FFO website.

Please go to the green "Get Tickets" button at the top of the page to make your donation, or to donate a smaller amount for cakewalk and supplies.

We encourage you to purchase online through Eventbrite, print your tickets at home, and bring them to the carnival to avoid the lines.

Thank you for supporting our school!

The Carnival is sponsored by the Manzanita FFO, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose goal is to:
  • Promote fellowship among parents, students & teachers.
  • Fundraise for school materials and programs.
  • Organize beneficial volunteer programs.
