Community Events

Hawk Trot 5K/10K Walk and Run

The Hawk Trot, a 5K/10Krun through the beautiful streets of Grayhawk is a valley-wide favorite.  After the race there is a festival filled with music, food, children's activities, entertainment and more!   

BowWow PowWow
Ruff! Ruff!  This event, open to the general public, is an opportunity to check out retail, educational and rescue booths while enjoying doggie demos, pet fashions, a dirty doggie wash and contests. There are plenty of activities for the whole family.

Grayhawk Snow Ball
The forecast for Grayhawk is…SNOW!  Every January Grayhawk has tons of snow delivered for the pleasure of kids of all ages.  Grayhawk families can join us for snowball fights, snow angels, hot chocolate and cookies.

Daddy-Daughter Dance
In February all fathers, brothers, uncles and friends have the chance to escort their favorite little lady to the ball.  This resident event includes dinner, dancing, prizes, activities and lots of quality time with the girls. 

Family BBQ and Movie Night
Grayhawk families come together for a night full of fun including a BBQ, bounce houses, volleyball, a variety of games and a movie on a gigantic screen in the ballpark.  This is a resident favorite!

Families are welcomed to the luau with a lei and a smile, followed by great food and a variety of fruity drinks.  Kids play as parents relax, and then everyone gets together to enjoy an authentic Hawaiian show full of singing, hula and fire dancing!

Splish Splash Bash
Grayhawk residents all put swimsuits on and join neighbors for a back to school celebration hard to forget.  This party is full of water fun including games, giant slip ‘n slides, a dunk tank and  blow up slides!

This is the event for anyone who has kids or is looking for some great summer work as a babysitter.  Here, families get the chance to interview the newest Grayhawk babysitters while the babysitters get to market their skills to parents.

Resident Golf Outings
Although the Grayhawk Golf Club is a public course and not formally affiliated with the Grayhawk Community Association, residents enjoy monthly golf specials throughout the year. Specials feature 18 holes, prizes and often, complimentary food.

“Soda Shop” Ice Cream Social
Residents get the chance to enjoy a good old fashioned ice cream social with family and neighbors.  This free ice cream is complete with all the fixings and is accompanied by music of the 50's and 60's, children's activities and more!

Pumpkin Patch
Kids get all dressed up in their costumes and get to pick out their favorite pumpkin from our huge “patch”.  They can they decorate with any of our crazy craft supplies. Residents also enjoy pizza, pinatas and a bounce house. A perfect fall activity!

Bus Trips
Resident bus trips have included a shopping trip to Nogales and a trip to the Tubac Festival of the Arts.  For a minimal cost, residents get a canvas tote bag with breakfast, snacks and information on the trip; as well as transportation complete with trivia and movies.

Santa Party
People wait all year for this party, and for good reason!  Kids get to sit on Santa’s lap and get their special holiday gift, while parents get to mingle with neighbors and friends.  There’s plenty of food and drinks on hand for all, and lots of holiday spirit!

Hanukkah Party
Dreidels, latkes-it’s all at the annual Grayhawk Hanukkah Party.  Kids are welcomed with a variety of craft tables, games and cookie decorating while parents sit back, relax and enjoy the holidays.

Holiday Party
At the annual Holiday Party, our adult residents dress up and spend an elegant night out.  Entertainment, food and drinks are excellent; but conversation with old and new friends alike steals the show.

Happy Hour, Ladies Night out and Singles Happy Hour
Grayhawk likes to party, and there is always a social event on the calendar for adults wanting to meet their neighbors, or just spend more time with their Grayhawk friends


Easter Egg Hunt
Residents dig out their baskets and Easter attire to join us for an Egg Hunt, cake walk and pictures with the ever popular Easter bunny.  Kids of all ages enjoy face painting, arts & crafts and cookie decorating.   

Spring Garage and Book Sale
Every spring the entire community goes on sale!  Residents can pay a nominal fee to get their house on our “master sale” map, or rent a table at Grayhawk Elementary.  Money raised is donated to the Grayhawk Elementary School PTO.  We also host an annual use book sale in conjunction with the garage sale to raise money for future Grayhawk Programs.

Grayhawk also hosts a wide variety of ongoing events and programs including lunch bunch, bridge, book clubs, wine tastings, golf outings, hiking club and more.
