Phoenix Festival of the Arts is excited to return home to Hance Park, December 11-12, 2021, with an arts and culture celebration perfect for the whole family. Phoenix Center for the Arts is proud to present the ninth annual event, voted Best of Phoenix 2020 Best Arts Festival by Phoenix New Times, featuring more than 150 art vendors and cultural organizations. It’s a perfect time to connect with the local art community and celebrate the season.

A full lineup of live music and performances will animate two stages. The Festival’s Main Stage, sponsored by Rebel Lounge, includes some of the best local bands in town. The Entertainment Pavilion features art demonstrations, circus performances, dance ensembles, spoken word poets, choral groups, and more!

It wouldn’t be an arts festival without interactive arts activities for both adults and kids. The Phoenix Mural Project, a hands-on community art project is a signature component of the Festival, allowing community members to paint and create alongside professional local artists. The Phoenix Festival of the Arts Family Zone, presented by the Teen Artist Guild, provides fun, free activities for families all day long.

Beer and wine, sponsored by Hensley Beverage Company and Dos Cabezas WineWorks, respectively, can be carried throughout the Festival grounds. This year’s culinary lineup coming soon!
