“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

A street collection of vendors that you could replicate in many towns or flea markets. It is good people watching. Shops are open late and the museum offers free admission early in the evening.

“A Very Good Street Fair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Get there early because it gets really crowded! Blocks and blocks of good booths offering everything from pet gifts, dried fruits, food booths, to art of all types. As an added bonus, the local shops and restaurants are open and the people watching is fantastic!

“Worth a look and a good walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

We went in the early evening to check out the stalls and figured some street food would be an option for dinner. There were several interesting options: paella, bbq, tamales, along with several types of sweets for dessert. In the end we decided to have dinner at a restaurant along Palm Canyon Drive and people watch. Enjoyed looking at the street art and listening to the various street musicians. All in all an enjoyable evening.

“Street food and other buys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We went at 6pm -strolled along all the options to decide what to eat. had some delicious tamales, and paella. There are tables and chairs at the end by the food booths. Bought organic ears of white corn and listened to music. The Villagefest has a variety on arts and crafts, things to eat, and farmer's market wares. Nice way to eat dinner on a Thursday evening!
