Phoestivus at the Phoenix Public Market will be returning once again for two fun evenings of holiday cheer on Thursday, December 10 and 17, 2015 from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm at 721 N Central Avenue in Downtown Phoenix. The event is hosted by Get Your PHX and the Phoenix Public Market, a program of Community Food Connections.
Shop local at Phoestivus this Holiday Season when selecting holiday gifts or preparing holiday meals! Attendees will have the opportunity to shop over 130 local vendors, showcasing a unique variety of locally grown, produced and prepared foods as well as hand-crafted gift items, jewelry and holiday decorations made by local artisans. Find our complete list of vendors you can shop here.
Bring your friends and family to enjoy dinner from our vendors and food trucks. Make a toast to the holidays with beer, cider and cocktails from the Phoenix Public Market Café and the always-popular Phoestivus Ale from Phoenix Ale Brewery.
"We put this event together every year as a way to support locally-owned businesses and to support healthy food through the Phoenix Public Market. It's also a great way to celebrate our community and just act like Phoestivus-lovin' goofballs for a couple nights," said Phoestivus Bürgermeister, Ken Clark.
The event will also feature the World's Largest Phoestivus Pole ("as far as we know"), Pheats of Strength, Airing of Grievances, Arizona Storytellers, vendor raffle every hour, holiday entertainment, and much more. Bring the kids and enjoy our crafts booth sponsored by The Heard Museum.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Phoenix Public Market, a program of Community Food Connections, a 501c3 non-profit organization. The Phoenix Public Market operates year-round, weekly Open Air Markets in Downtown Phoenix every Thursday evening and Saturday morning. Last year's Phoestivus event saw over 3,000 attendees on each of the two nights! Come out and support our local vendors and downtown market!

"We are happy to host the Phoestivus Market for the sixth year in a row", said Heather Lauer, Community Food Connections board member. "Our mission is to create a downtown community gathering place that supports local business and small farmers and that strengthens our community. It's particularly important to promote the message of supporting local businesses as people shop for holiday gifts."
