I had such a great time walking the Village Fest. There is so much to see, and the entertainment was great. People were so friendly and it was nice to see how dog friendly this place was.

Its an interesting visit, not so abundant. Crafted pieces, Palm Spring Culture. Walk slowly and you will find some cool stuff. Specially a Man that rectores vintage speakers. Amazing.

For locals or visitors, how great is it when you can close off an entire downtown of a hip city and enjoy music, crafts, food and all the merchant shops without dealing with cars. Awesome experience.

We arrived to Palm Springs on Thursday and were shocked that the street was closed, we finally figured out why, and decided to walk up and down and check out all the cool vendors. Lots of neat stuff. From wall decor to paintings, everything for the home or your little four legged family member. Great way to start our weekend... More

Lots to see - crafts, jewelry and food. In fact, it is so long we didn't make it to the end! Stopped for dinner and then continued until closing at 10:00 p.m.

If you've been once, no need to go back. Lots of junk on offer. People watching can be good but often times simply crowds in the way.

There are a ton of venders selling everything from glass blown art to retro postcards to soap. Nice place to leisurely stroll, eat and people watch. Most of the... More
