VillageFest makes for a fun Thursday evening out in Palm Springs. There is a farmers market (6:00-10:00 pm) where farmers sell their produce and products like dates and fresh juices. I bought some of the biggest pomegranates I have ever seen. There are also booths with arts and crafts, as well as specialty booths with candies, chocolates, cakes, biscotti, cookies,... More

A lot bigger and better than expected. A wide variety of arts and crafts. Something to interest all. There are a large number of food pavilions offering a variety of tasty meals and snacks. A worthwhile visit.

We went to this Evening Street Fest. There are a large array of local artisans that set up their booths from 7-pm to 10pm every Thursday evening. Brings out quite a crowd of people even though this night was rather cool.

This is a can't miss attraction, that is for sure. Food was a bit iffy in that there were not a lot of options,healthy but it was basically a night-time farmer's market with lots of other vendors as well. Art, crafts etc., etc. were everywhere, as was live music. This is a weekly event and a lot of fun.

Best selection of local artisans and great place to get a cheap, tasty meal. Thursday nights wouldn't be the same without this awesome event!

The Village Fest every Thursday from 6 to 10 pm encompasses blocks of downtown, blocked from traffic and filled with booths typical of a street fair, i.e., art, food, and things to buy. They had interesting opportunities to buy fresh dates and pistachios. There were live entertainers. The streets were mostly well lit. Very appreciative crowd of attendees and vendors.
