About Phoenix

QuiltCon 2025 will be held at the Phoenix Convention Center in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona. 

Phoenix is the anchor of the Valley of the Sun, the 11th largest metropolitan area in the United States. Serene gardens, one-of-a-kind museums, award-winning dining and more await you in Phoenix. The 50-acre desert garden showcase, the Desert Botanical Garden, features not only arid plants and delicate blooms but also hosts art installations intertwined with the flora. The Heard Museum, in the heart of downtown, tells the stories of the tradition, culture, and history of 22 regional American Indian tribes through art and cultural objects on exhibit. The Arts District on Roosevelt Row is home to galleries, gorgeous murals, and a monthly art walk, just north of the convention center. 

With a sprawling metropolitan area as well as mountains and the Sonoran Desert within a short drive of the downtown area, Phoenix has something for everyone.

Mother Nature smiles on some cities more than others. Phoenix is overflowing with sunshine most days, with an average of 300 sunny days per year. Skies stay blue throughout the winter months, with high temperatures reaching into the 60s and 70s. Desert nights and mornings can get chilly, but the temperature rarely drops below freezing.

The Phoenix Convention Center will be the Phoenix home to QuiltCon. Inspired by the red-rock walls and turquoise waters of the Grand Canyon, you’ll find an unusually beautiful convention center in the middle of downtown Phoenix. Natural light streams in throughout the center. QuiltCon will be held in the North Building, a four-level structure that occupies an entire city block.
