We had no idea that there was a weekly street festival in Palm Springs and were pleasantly surprised by it! There was endless variety in the food and shopping vendors as well as live music. We strolled through the crowds to and from dinner and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

The village fest on Thursday nights is always on our list of things to do in Palm Springs. You can walk for blocks down the middle of the main street and visit booths offering a wide variety of interesting items including art, crafts, unusual products and food. An attraction not to be missed. It can be crowded though so be... More

Lots of booths selling all kinds of items. Most items are hand made. Most people will find something that they just have to have. I got a lovely bracelet and some pretty art cards. It's very crowded and hard to walk down the middle as people stop short or stand around in little groups. The farmers' market is good--- lots... More

Lots of walking and lots of vendors. What else can I say, it was a flea market. We did not purchase much, a bit of bread and fruity trays. The jewellery was not quality but there were a few interesting bits of stuff.

I am not a great shopper so from that standpoint the fair does not have a lot to offer.I will say that the fair does make for a fairly interesting stroll and people watching experience and there are some interesting stalls to pick up a snack.My wife picked up some kitchen towels and salt water toffee so she was happy!...

Never miss a VillageFest when visiting Palm Springs. Tons of vendors with anything from fine art to fresh produce. Excellent foods from the region and lots of fun trinkets to purchase. Of course, no where better to people watch.

Every Thursday night, Palm Canyon Drive is transformed into a street fair with a wide variety of vendors selling produce, scented soaps, shaved ice, baked goods, a variety of different kinds of art, clothing, you name it, and someone is selling it. Come for the food court, which offers a diverse variety of choices, stay for the people-watching, and toast... More

This was something to do when we had an evening with no plans. It's only on Thursdays. With local vendors selling their items and places to grab a snack. Great for couples families kids and dogs. Outside activity where walking shoes and and a light jacket.

My husband and I found out about this fest when we had a recent stay in Palm Springs. It happens on Thursday nights and it was wonderful! Tons of top quality handmade goods and food. The atmosphere was lively, the night gorgeous and lots of people were out for a fun evening walking through town. It did not disappoint!
