Palm Springs Happenings, January - March, California


The Palm Springs area offers many more things than we were able to do while in the area – some of which do not start until after we leave. However, they sound like fun – and perhaps if you’re in the area in January - March, you can enjoy some of these:

Polo ~ starts in January
Did you know that Indio is considered the Polo capital of the west? On Sundays, starting in January, the grounds at the El Dorado Polo Club are open to the public so you can enjoy a polo match.

Art Under the Umbrellas ~ Jan 31, Feb 14 & April 11, 2009
Art Under the Umbrellas is held in Old Town LaQuinta on Main Street, between Washington and Calle Tampico, 10am-4pm. Over 60 artists are features, as well as craftspeople from all over the southwest. There is live music and wine tasting to add to your enjoyment.

Wine Music Series ~ Saturdays in February & March
The music is free, yet for $10 you can enjoy two glasses of wine and appetizers. This is held in Palm Desert on El Paseo Drive.

The Date Festival in Indio ~ mid-February
The Date Festival is held at the Indio Fairgrounds in the middle of February each year, and costs $8/ per person. The Date Festival includes entertainment, camel and ostrich races, a nightly Arabian pageant, bull riding pig races, and more!

Horse Show ~ late February – March
Hunter and jumper events are held at the HITS Horse Park in Thermal (take I-10 to CA86 spur south to Airport Blvd) and are free Wednesday – Saturdays (8am-5pm). Sundays cost $5 per person.
