Owner description: The place to meet new friends is at this old-fashioned street fair with sidewalk performers, musicians, farmer's market, gifts and lots of food.

Not much to see and your standard food vendors. There was competing music at and near the Hyatt. Street is narrow so you feel like cattle just trying to get to the end to see if you missed anything. Pass.

This is a Thurs evening event covering an 8 block section of downtown. Lots of vendors, and entertainment on every block. We enjoyed watching the spray painter make beautiful paintings, and the musicians entertain. we are into organic produce etc, but there was little to choose from in that area, but we managed to find some things and went to a different organic farmers market in town for further shopping. There are some beautiful crafts and tasty things to get there, so go hungry and bring money.

An outdoor shopping experience everyone should try. So much selection, good deals, fun people and great food.

If you are looking for something to do on a nice night on a Thursday, go the Village Fest. It is about 8 blocks of blocked-off streets right in the heart of Downtown Palm Springs.

We enjoyed this outdoor VillageFest. Many food vendors - unfortunately the two we tried were just okay. We had no problem finding a table to sit at to eat our food. We purchased some dried fruit and nuts to snack on during our Palm Springs stay. Look out for the lane reflectors in the street - we tripped on them a couple times!
