We went to this Evening Street Fest. There are a large array of local artisans that set up their booths from 7-pm to 10pm every Thursday evening. Brings out quite a crowd of people even though this night was rather cool.

This is a can't miss attraction, that is for sure. Food was a bit iffy in that there were not a lot of options,healthy but it was basically a night-time farmer's market with lots of other vendors as well. Art, crafts etc., etc. were everywhere, as was live music. This is a weekly event and a lot of fun.

Best selection of local artisans and great place to get a cheap, tasty meal. Thursday nights wouldn't be the same without this awesome event!

The Village Fest every Thursday from 6 to 10 pm encompasses blocks of downtown, blocked from traffic and filled with booths typical of a street fair, i.e., art, food, and things to buy. They had interesting opportunities to buy fresh dates and pistachios. There were live entertainers. The streets were mostly well lit. Very appreciative crowd of attendees and vendors.

Love all the farmers market type of booths. Love the Holy Honey booth...they alwAys give free tastes and the honey is worth the price! The music is great all over the festival but one in particular is the singer named Chris Lomeli that sings at the Hyatt. He is amazing and worth going to listen to.

This is an open air event on the street between the local businesses. Vendors set up tents and sell everything from massages to handmade candles, metal work, jewelry, clothes for your dog, restaurant food, local foods, breads, honey, fruits and vegies, clothes, handbags, travel, art, etc. Streets are blocked from traffic so it is safe, Free covered parking right on...
