Tempe holds a festival of the arts, showing over 400 artists in the Mill Avenue District over the course of a three day weekend. The art is made by independent artists who apply online from anywhere in North America, have their work judged in one of the categories, since the range of art mediums they accept is expansive, and have it show. There is also a Festival Stage where live performances will be going on, street performers, and of course places to get food throughout.
The event is free to attend, this Winter it’s December 6-8, 10 am-6 pm each day. There will also be an event in the spring.
