“Fun for strolling through pedestrianized Palm Canyon Drive on Thursday nights”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is one evening when downtown Palm Springs becomes a colorful market place. The stores are open, and a large variety of stalls is set up to tempt the visitor to buy all sorts of offerings from the artsy to the tacky. It's nice just for looking, and whoever wants to have a bite to eat ,will have a choice of food stalls there too.There are no admission fees, and a large parking house close by offers free parking. If you arrive early , you won't experience a parking problem, but things get very busy as the evening progresses.
If you look for a larger market venue, you will want to see the Saturday and Sunday morning market at the College of the Desert in Palm Desert.

“Unique Street Fair”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Have attended this attraction years ago and since staying nearby for a week wouldn't miss rerurning. It is much larger however, but maintains quality for this kind of activity.

Not only is there street entertainment, but booths of art and crafts which we learned must be
judged before setting up shop; and do come hungry since there are many unique food booths.
In fact the next time my husband and I attend we will eat there.

From teens to seniors ; everyone can enjoy the Villagefest! Oh,by the way it is held every Thursday
evening throughout the year with shorter hours in the summer.
