Named “Best Arts Festival” by Phoenix New Times, the Scottsdale Arts Festival is not something you want to miss. Featuring work from 185 jury-selected artists from across the United States and Canada, the event will take place this weekend, Friday March 14th through Sunday March 16th.
There will be plenty to see and do: waltz around between artists to live music performed by Arizona’s top bands, munch on delicious gourmet cuisine from local food trucks from the Phoenix Street Food Coalition, jump on the Happy Gift ‘bounce house’ brought to you by FriendWithYou and Scottsdale Public Art, and entertain the youngsters with family-friendly art activities at Imagine Nation.
The artwork featured spans many genres, and will include painting, sculpture, glass, ceramics, jewelry, photography, printmaking, textiles, woodworking, and more. Pieces will be available for purchase directly from the artists during the fair, and through the Festival’s online art auction. Please click HERE for a list of the featured artists.
Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the entrance on the day of the festival. Prices are $8 for a single-day pass and $12 for a two-day pass.
