One of my all-time favorite events in Arizona is the Tempe Festival of the Arts.
This fun-packed weekend event has become a family tradition that keeps getting better year after year.
The 51st version of the Tempe Festival of The Arts is a free, family-friendly event that showcases artists, street performers, food and wine offerings.
From December 6th to the 8th of 2019 from 10 am to 5:30 pm.
The Tempe Arts Fest takes place on Mill Avenue between 3rd Street and University Parkway, and on 5th Street between Myrtle and Ash Avenue. Be aware of road closures and choose public transportation if possible.
You will find a vast array of artists displaying their creations at the Tempe Festival of The Arts. From musicians, street performers and craftsmen, there is something for everyone there.
This is the perfect Christmas shopping opportunity for those who like to gift unique things. It reminds me a lot of the European Christmas Markets and I love that buying from these vendors it's a contribution to help small businesses.
The food options include a little bit of everything; from Asian flare with Island Noodles to so famous Maine Lobster Lady, everyone can find something they like at the Tempe Festival of the Arts.
This year I'm looking forward to enjoying the Wine and Beer Garden. You can get tickets here for as low as $15 you can enjoy local wine and beer tastings from renown makers.
I love to be able to bring my kid to this event because he loves it as much as I do. They really make an effort to include the little ones with many arts and crafts activities throughout the day. Last year our favorite activity was building a kaleidoscope!
I can't wait for this weekend! Will you be there? Be sure to enter my Instagram contest to win a pair of tickets to the Wine and Beer Garden.
