Canal Convergence is back for its 10th year, and SRP is a proud partner of the award-winning annual event.
The event, known for combining water, art and light, introduced a whole new element last year — augmented reality. This year, attendees will see SRP in the virtual realm, sharing history and interesting information digitally along the canals at the event.
Remember to always be safe when navigating around the canals, and watch out for the fire monster !
What is Canal Convergence?
At its core, Canal Convergence is a celebration of community, sustainability, art, education and history. The best part — it’s free! Presented by SRP, the City of Scottsdale and Billie Jo and Judd Herberger, it begins Friday, Nov. 5, and goes through Sunday, Nov. 14.
As a provider of water to the Valley, it’s important for SRP to share information about the canals with the community. You’re sure to learn a new thing or two about how we bring water to the Valley.
This year, visitors will enjoy art displays throughout Scottsdale in addition to augmented reality experiences. The free canal tours we typically give during the event will be offered virtually again this year. Be sure to look for our resident experts through the event’s app.
Take a look at art installations from past events in the Canal Convergence Public Art Archive .
Take the virtual SRP canal tour
Along the Arizona Canal at Scottsdale Waterfront, you will find signs with scannable QR codes from the Marshall Way Bridge to the Soleri Bridge. Through a self-guided tour, there will be a handful of opportunities to hear from our experts about canal infrastructure and history.
To ensure everyone’s safety, we kindly ask that attendees follow the recommended CDC COVID-19 guidelines and maintain a safe distance from each other and the canals.
