UPDATE: Phoenix Festival of the Arts 2020

After careful consideration, the Phoenix Festival of the Arts Planning Committee has made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s events until 2021 in the interest of public health and safety.

We greatly appreciate your support and continued interest in Phoenix Center for the Arts events, and encourage you to stay creative and engaged with the community until we can see you again.

Wishing you a happy and healthy year!



Phoenix Festival of the Arts returns home to Hance Park in time for some excellent holiday shopping opportunities, December 12-13, 2020. Phoenix Center for the Arts is proud to present the ninth annual event, 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, sponsored by Soliloquies, features art demonstrations, circus performances, dance ensembles, spoken word poets, choral groups, and more! Check out the lineup here (coming soon): phoenixfestivalofthearts.org/entertainment.

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!
