Welcome Sir Knights, Companions, Brethren and Guests to the Western States Easter Observance. This important tradition and event will be hosted by the Arizona Grand Commandery and held in beautiful (and warm) Tempe, Arizona at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel. The Mission Palms offers a close proximity to many local attractions, restaurants and shopping areas; as well as a four-star experience for our sojourning Knights.

Knights Templar from the Western States are encouraged to attend this Grand Encampment event. It is a great fraternal opportunity in Chivalric Masonry that is focused on our Savior rather than the business of the Craft.

We have scheduled official events for Friday, April 3, Saturday, April 4, and Sunday, April 5, 2015; but have opened registration at the hotel for two days on either side so that you may also include taking in the local sites as a part of the experience. The official start of events will be the reception in the Courtyard of the Hotel on Friday at 6:00pm. On Saturday, there will be a banquet at the hotel, also starting at 6:00pm. Sunday, we will start the Easter Observance at 7:30am, and this will be followed by an Easter Morning Brunch hosted and provided by the El Zaribah Shrine. We have included many of the local attractions that have programs available for interim times on this site for your convenience.

We hope that you will join us for this opportunity for a good fraternal experience and a great gathering in Our Lord's name.
