A gathering of diversity!! The atmosphere seemed friendly and welcoming. Some of the exhibits were unusual and great to view. Different types of foods to try and it seemed bigger than the last time we were here, approx 3 years ago.

I was excited to be in Palm Springs on. Thursday night and made sure to stay at a hotel with good access to the street fair. (Hyatt) Maybe I was expecting too much but I found very little there that I wanted to buy. Everyone has their own ideas about what makes this type of thing fun however, so it's... More

I took a free shuttle from the Courtyard by Marriott so parking was not an issue. Earlier I had driven by the area and noticed they close off some streets so I'd suggest parking a little further away and doing a short walk. The evening I visited the temperature was great, in the 80's and I can see how maybe... More

In the past 10 years, it's gotten bigger, more diverse, more crowded and more fun. Great to see all the people out in downtown for the evening, strolling, shopping, eating, enjoying...

If you are in the Palm Springs area on a Thursday evening you should plan on attending VillageFest. There was a nice variety of goods and food offered. Even on a summer evening is wasn't uncomfortable and was well attended. If you need to cool off you can step into one of the many brick and morter restaurants and businesses... More

Fun way to enjoy a very casual evening. The vendors had carnival type stuff that's fun to look at but not really anything I would want to buy but everyone is smiling and having a good time walking and looking.

Each Thursday between 5 to 10 ? PM...enjoy Villagefest in downtown Palm Springs. I'm there whenever I am in town. All art booths have custom handmade products...nothing imported from China etc. You will be amazed by the quality of goods available...paintings, ceramics, metalworks, jewelry etc. Local farmers have fresh fruit, nuts,dates and vegetables. Also local restaurants have food booths so... More
