ArtFest of Scottsdale
Jumpstart your holiday gift shopping in Downtown Scottsdale and take home contemporary and artisan crafts, fine art, photography and more from 150 national vendors. ArtFest admission is free, but you’ll want to bring your wallet for artwork and a bite to eat in the events’ sculpture garden setting.
Bring $12 (or two of your own baked pies), and get five tasting tickets to taste local chef and community creations at Roosevelt Row’s annual Pie Social. Cleanse your palette between sweet and savory pies with free milk from a local dairy farm, enjoy live music and shop pie-inspired market vendors.
