Sun City Festival is Del Webb's newest active adult community in the northwest valley of Phoenix. It is nestled at the base of the beautiful White Tank Mountains 10 miles west of Surprise. The community is full of the latest desirable amenities and highly upgraded - yet inexpensive - new construction homes.
Del Webb combined nearly 50 years of active adult construction experience to design what has been acclaimed as one of their finest communities. Around every turn in Sun City Festival, residents are greeted with some of the finest amenities and active lifestyle options.
Since Del Webb first pioneered the concept of active adult communities in 1960, a lot has changed. Along the way, Del Webb has stayed at the forefront of design and technology to produce quality homes and lifestyles scarcely matched by other builders. Sun City Festival is no exception.
For Del Webb's latest masterpiece, they chose a location in Buckeye, far from the hustle and bustle of the suburban reaches of Surprise and Sun City West. Driving west on Sun Valley Parkway through 10 miles of secluded and untainted Arizona desert, visitors escape the traffic lights and congestion as their cares melt away. Right about the time it seems you are lost, Sun City Festival emerges like an oasis on the horizon.
Sun City Festival is the ideal place for active adults who want a community that offers the latest first-rate amenities and new construction homes. For retirees who want a convenient location near plenty of shopping and cultural attractions, Festival might not be the best choice. It is situated 1,600 feet above the valley floor where the air is cleaner, the summers are cooler and congestion is non-existent. The community's remote location provides visitors a reminiscent look of what the pioneers of the original Sun City saw when construction began there over 50 years ago.
