Palm Springs VillageFest
Locals and tourists happily mingle at this weekly event held on Palm Canyon Drive. Many shops stay open late, and the sidewalks are crowded with food booths, a certified farmer's market with locally grown produce, craft booths and artists offering their creations. In addition, street entertainers charm the crowd with magic, music and costumes. The fair is held every Thursday evening, except for holidays. Admission is free. Credit card acceptance varies by vendor; produce vendors usually accept only cash.
My husband and I walk the village fest two or three times a year. We enjoy the vendors, the food and people watching.
For a local, however, it becomes mundane because the same vendors are there each week, so the 2-3 times a year are enough for us.
If you take a small dog, go early (5 to 6ish PM). A small dog can get lost in the crowd, and get steped on, or tripped over!
Freindly neighhood atmosphere,, came in October around Halloween, and the town people were freindly and everyone was having fun. It was like everyone in town came out to enjoy the Thursday night. I like watching the old movies on the wide sceen at the end of the blocked off street. The vendors were great with a good mixture of things to eat and items to purchase. Great night , a must do. Worth the drive.
Just recently made my first trip to PS and my cousin took me to the Village Fest and really enjoyed everything about it. The street artist very entertaining and creative. Something for everyone. The vendors very friendly and prices very reasonable. Can't wait to go back to PS and the Village Fest. Thanks Kathleen.

We like the great variety of items; art, music, food (fresh and dried fruits, nuts,etc), entertainment, fresh and dried florals, and about as many kinds of crafts as you could think of. It's a lot of fun. We look forward to the time we can go again. Everyone should plan to spend a Thurs. evening in Palm Springs at the VillageFest.
