Community Events

We are a community of diversity, heritage and tradition. Desert Recreation District celebrates and honors all that is special about the Coachella Valley by sponsoring community events throughout the year. From Santa's Hotline, Eggstravaganza Easter-egg hunts to Music Concert Series, DRD helps make family time meaningful and fun. 



food distribution

No paperwork is required to receive food at any of our food distribution events. We partner with others in the Coachella Valley to bring these events to you. Distributions are generally the fourth Saturday of the month at our La Quinta Community Park, 77-865 Avenida Montezuma. Once exact dates are confirmed, they will be posted.
