VillageFest, Palm Springs

(3.9/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Every Thursday night, Palm Canyon Drive transforms into a bustling outdoor street fair. During VillageFest, the street is closed to traffic and hosts all sorts of local vendors selling fresh produce, prepared foods, arts and crafts, flowers, and jewelry. Adding to the festive atmosphere, local restaurants and bars provide nearly endless choices for dinner. The event draws big crowds, which can mean long lines, but the reasonable prices, huge variety of options, and atmosphere bring people back again and again. Put VillageFest into our Palm Springs itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Palm Springs.
