Every Thursday Night

It's a fun place to wander around and check out all the artisan offerings. It gets pretty crowded with lots to see. Live music and lots to eat. Best of all - it's free!

Nice for people watching and a pleasant walk up and down the main street, but nothing special. Average street food, mediocre arts and cheap crafts. Ok to walk through on the way to dinner, but wouldn't consider it a night out.

My husband and I visited the village fest during a four day stay in Palm Springs. We didn't know it was on so it was a nice surprise! The street was so lively and there was a nice mix of stalls and music. Well worth a stroll!

Every Thursday night they close 'main street' and have a 'Village fest'. You have people selling home remedies, jewelry, lamps, massage by the minute, lots of cool stuff to just 'check out'. It's about a mile walk in total. You also have the shops that normally do business in the area as well as lots of places to eat.

I think the reason we make sure we always make the Street Fair a part of our Palm Spring visit are the people. The vendors are always so happy to see you and help find the perfect thing you are looking for. The guests are usually very courteous to each other walking through the busy passage way. Truely a unique... More

This street fair/farmers market is amazing....Everything sold there has to be handmade, which means it's made locally and good for the economy! And then there's the food of all kinds, plus fudge, drinks, kettle corn, etc. Clothing, artwork, jewelry, skin lotion, coasters, purses, you name it. Be ready for a big crowd, lots of dogs, and 3/4 of a mile... More

We were doing a self made food/bar hop...and left one of our restaurants to head here...the bartender said "Why are you going there you need another dream catcher or bag of nuts?' We laughed but, decided we needed to check it out ourselves...we actually found some really unique items...it wasn't life changing, but fun. But, it's mainly shopping, so, if... More
