Phoestivus will be held on December 8 and 15 from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. at Phoenix Public Market.
Inspired by the famous Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas markets in Germany) and Seinfeld's Festivus, a parody and secular holiday celebrated in an episode of the show, Phoestivus was born to be the perfect all-inclusive December celebration. The Phoestivus market features locally grown and produced gifts for holiday giving from more than 130 local vendors that showcase a variety of locally grown, produced and prepared foods as well as hand-crafted gift items, jewelry andholiday decorations by local artisans. Last year more than 6,000 participants and shoppers gathered in downtown Phoenix for these two nights of local shopping.
Event organizers promise the 2016 event will be more fun, creative, local and diverse than ever. The Phoenix event boasts traditions like the Phoestivus Pole, Pheats of Strength, and the Airing of Grievances as well as Phoestivus Ale (brewed by Phoenix Ale Brewery), Phoestivus Reindeer (baby goats dolled up for the occasion) and a hipster Santa. Phoestivus began in 2009 and is the brainchild of Ken Clark from Get Your PHX.
Phoestivus is a fundraiser for the Phoenix Public Market, a program of Community Food Connections, a a 501c3 non-profit organization. CFC creates a downtown community gathering place by supporting small farmers and businesses that strengthen sustainable food systems and produce healthy products for the local community.
This is an all ages event. Free parking available close to the Roosevelt/Central Light Rail Station.
Phoenix Public Market is located at 721 N. Central Avenue in Downtown Phoenix, Arizona.

"The Tempe Festival of the Arts consistently ranks among the Top 100 Classic & Contemporary Craft Shows in the nation by Sunshine Artist magazine and has received the prestigious Pinnacle Award from the International Festival and Events Association. The spring and fall events each attract nearly 225,000 visitors to the Downtown Tempe over the course of a 3-day weekend.
Quality independent artists are fundamental to the success of the event. Each Festival receives more than 700 applications from throughout North America, in 16 different visual arts categories that range from wood to photography to ceramics, wearable art, jewelry and other categories. From these applicants, a jury comprised of members of the local art community ranks the top artisans in each category to participate in the Festival, and the highest ranking artists receive invitations to participate. During the Festival, a new jury selects the best overall artist and the top artist in each category and these winners receive cash honoraria awards.
As many as 400 artist booths line Mill Avenue and the surrounding streets presenting unique, and hand-made artwork that offers visitors a distinctive shopping experience.
While the Tempe Festival of the Arts focuses on visual art and the artists who create it, there also is a wide variety of other activity for guests to enjoy. Live entertainment provides fun for festival-goers. Performances throughout the venue keep audiences in high spirits throughout the day. In addition to the Festival Stage, street performers, food and beverage vendors, sponsor exhibits, and entertainment booths are set up for the amusement of Festival visitors. Visit the Arizona Wine Festival for tastings and sales by the glass, bottle, or case. And, enjoy The Art of Beer featuring local microbrewery sampling and sales.
Stop by the ASU Art Museum Ceramics Research Center and Brickyard Gallery, located at the Brickyard on Mill. Check out their latest exhibition, participate in an interactive community art project, and much more. "
