Looking for something to do this week?

The Arizona Renaissance Festival is opening its gates for President's Day (Monday), as most government offices are closed. The festival is typically only open on Saturdays and Sundays.

"The Bridges of Madison County" opens Tuesday at ASU Gammage. "City of Angels" opens Friday at the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts. "The Producers" comes to Orpheum Theatre in downtown Phoenix for a 3-day weekend event.

Country singer Jennifer Nettles is in town this week as are Andy Grammer and Haley Reinhart. Temperatures continue to climb this week so do not forget to drink lots of water.

Scroll down for details on these events and more.
