“Better than your usual street fair”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

A nice night strolling along the main street in Palm Springs. Lots of vendors, lots of fair food. Pretty quiet crowd, lots of families, couples, groups of friends. It's a very pretty town, so what's not to like?

“great market”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This was a great market and something to the evenings. There were lots of neat stuff. Some of the stuff was hard to travel with if you only have one suitcase. The prices were reasonable and great selection of food

“VillageFest is a Great Place for Visitors!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

My husband and I live in the Coachella Valley and have the fun opportunity to host many visitors from all over the country. If guests arrive on Thursday afternoon you may be our first recommendation will be to include an evening at VillageFest. Great people watching, amazing weather, interesting items for sale combined with the great food on Palm Canyon makes it a not to be missed event! Parking can be a challenge so try the public parking struture off of Indian Canyon.

“Thursday night party”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

The street vendors, local singers, street performers, and food start at about 6-6.30pm and stay out until about 10ish. Lots of variety for things to buy and eat :-) The local shops stay open late too in order to take advantage of the business and have sales. My sister and I strolled along comfortably and wished that this street fair lasted more often. Thanks to the city for allowing for free parking too.

“Great time”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We really enjoyed this evening of a "hometown" feel festival. So many activities, great music all night, awesome food vendors. We stayed for hours and could have stayed longer. A Must not miss. Be aware, though, the crowd is "eclectic" so may not be suitable for younger kids.
