Tempe Festival of the Arts - Spring
Join us for the 46th Annual Tempe Festival of the Arts, March 31 - April 2, 2023 in Downtown Tempe. The festival is among the oldest and best loved traditions in the Desert Southwest. In a normal year, more than 250,000 visitors enjoy the festival and approximately 350 artists participate from throughout North American. The Festival occurs in a festive urban street fair atmosphere.
This juried show promotes original art with all artists on site to engage visitors. The festival takes advantage of the "snowbird" high tourism season in Arizona. More than a quarter of the Festival's visitors come from outside Phoenix and outside Arizona to shop for one of a kind gifts. March in Arizona is also Spring Training, so visitors are quite prevalent.
