Spring Fun: Anthem Days & Carnival Full Schedule

For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May.

Entry is free, but there’s a charge for food and drink, the carnival and some Kids Zone activities, all in Anthem Community Park.
