Our hearts go out to all affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This unprecedented crisis is challenging for every individual, family, community and our businesses.

As the pandemic disrupts our normal routines, Carefree restaurants are reaching out to offer the community curbside pickup.  Please support our local restaurant community during this difficult time.

The following restaurants in Carefree are open for take-out only, per orders from the Governor’s Office.  Both indoor and patio seating are disallowed.  During this period, Governor Ducey has waived the restrictions on sales of liquor beyond the premises without a special ($300,000!) liquor license.  Restaurants are allowed to sell bottles of wine and beer to go.

This is Kevin. Kevin saw a Season For Caring donation jar on the counter at Town Hall. Kevin knew this campaign benefited Foothills Caring Corps, helping deserving seniors in our area. Kevin also heard that Kiwanis Club of Carefree, AZ was matching monetary donations up to $5,000. Kevin made a contribution to the campaign. Kevin is a generous and caring guy.
Please donate when you see a jar at a Carefree business this holiday season. Be like Kevin. #seasonforcaring #givingback #keepitcarefree
