ABOUT THE DOGG
The Dirty Dogg Saloon has built a reputation from your local watering hole during the week, to hosting the wildest parties and events (look us up come Arizona Bike Week and stay for the Spring Fling). We don’t have your run of the mill bartenders. What we do have are the best rafter swinging, drink slinging, sass bringing bartenders in the southwest.
Whether it’s daily or nightly, we have a drink special that’s sure to quench your thirst. Live music on Thursday nights. Simply put, the Dirty Dogg Saloon is a great place for music, people and good times.
Cactus League Spring Training is in full swing here in the Valley of the Sun and its one of our favorite times of the year. People from all over the country and the world have made Scottsdale, Arizona the place to be during March. The Cactus League has long been a cherished Arizona tradition for locals, tourists and, of course, baseball fans! Spring training baseball under the warm Arizona sun has been a tradition for devoted fans since 1947, when just two teams, the Cleveland Indians and the New York Giants, came here to prepare for the rigors of the long regular season. Today, 15 teams train in the Phoenix metropolitan area in the greatest concentration of professional baseball facilities found anywhere in the United States. For visitors, the Cactus League couldn’t be more convenient, with short drive times between ballparks and a full range of hotel, dining and shopping amenities. Truly, the Cactus League is the premier destination for baseball lovers. Currently, the Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Cleveland Indians, Colorado Rockies, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, Milwaukee Brewers, Oakland Athletics, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners and the Texas Rangers all call Arizona their spring training home.
Along with Spring Training, Spring also brings in many other great events:
The Parada Del Sol parade and rodeo. The 64th Annual Parada del Sol Rodeo is PRCA Sanctioned Rodeo is being held on March 10, & 11, 2017 at 7pm March 12, 2017 at 2pm.

The Annual Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show since 1955 and has set the pace in the Arabian horse world. The first show was held at the grounds of the Arizona Biltmore Hotel which was a beautiful setting for a horse show. The Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show was a first class show from the very first day. The Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show is now held at West World 16601 North Pima Road Scottsdale, AZ 85260 February 16 – 26th.
Arizona Bike Week will be turning 21 in 2017. This years event certainly sounds like a reason to celebrate. Last year they completely redesigned the site plan and this year they are tweaking it a little more. The vendor area will remain in the upper lot like last year but will be incorporating more areas of the on-site expo hall. Last year it was used just for the Legends Motorcycle Auction and Flat Track Racing. This year they will be adding vendors and live entertainment for all five days of the event.
