The Sexiest City in America Has a Crafty Side
|Villagefest - Every Thursday Evening|
Recently voted sexiest city, Palm Springs knows how to throw a craft fair!
If it's Thursday, get on over the Villagefest. This is a street fair that is about 5 blocks long and runs in the early evening. It is one the only events that is a year-long event in this area. The reason it is so popular is that early evenings are the best time of day out here. Granted, the wind is really bad sometimes, but otherwise the temperature doesn't drop until after midnight. Even in the winter, the temps are a comfy 60-70 degrees making this event the perfect evening stroll.
Along the way you will find crafters, jewelry, clothing, fresh flowers, fruit and veggie vendors, local fast food and live entertainment. Palm Springs is home to many celebs and this event is as glamorous as a street fair can get. However, the food prices are very reasonable and there are no admission fees.
Villagefest is a very busy event so come early. Parking can be a nightmare and you make have to walk a ways to the fair, but there are interesting things too see along the way. Make sure to plan to spending a couple of hours at this show if you want to see everything.
