Phoenix Festival of the Arts returns for a weekend-long celebration of arts, music, and culinary delights, December 7-9 in Hance Park. This fun local event takes a big leap forward in year seven with 187 confirmed vendors. With a full lineup of live music and entertainment taking place on three stages, it’s the perfect time to shop local and celebrate the season.
The Festival’s Main Stage, sponsored by Rebel Lounge, includes some of the best local bands in town. This year’s headliners include Fairy Bones, Aunt B, Some Dark Hollow, The Blood Feud Family Singers, and 76th Street. The Entertainment Pavilion features art demonstrations, circus performances, dance ensembles, spoken word poets, choral groups, and more! The Acoustic Stage, sponsored by Soliloquies, will offer up some amazing up-and-coming solo and duo acts from around the Valley.
Wine and beer, sponsored in part by Hensley Beverage Company, can be carried throughout the Festival grounds. This year’s food vendor lineup includes 2 Fat Guys Grilled Cheese AZ, Cooks Kettle Corn, Cousins Maine Lobster, Everything and then Some, Fluffy Vegans, Freak Brothers Pizza, Hot Bamboo, Hummus Xpress, Local Lunchbox, Lulu’s Sorbetto, Royal Solitude Coffee, Satay Hut, Sonoran Sunset Grill, StrEAT Gyro, and The Fry Bread Truck.
The Phoenix Mural Project, a truly unique art project organized by acclaimed local muralist, Hugo Medina, is a signature component of the Festival each year. Thirty local artists will be painting live throughout the festival, while collaborating on shared mural panels with the artist on either side. Mural panels will be sold during the event to raise funds for the artists, as well as the festival’s presenting organization, Phoenix Center for the Arts. The Community can also get in on the action by picking up a brush and painting on one of ten community mural panels onsite.
The Family Zone, presented by the Teen Artist Guild, provides fun, free activities for families all day long. Activities include face painting, the teen art show & sale, and lots of fun with Phoenix Youth Circus Arts
