Come indulge with us while we teach you how to grow your own herbs to use for your NYE celebration.
Phoestivus will be held on December 14th and 21st 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 2017 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), Yeti Sightings, 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.
