Tempe Festival of the Arts

Quality independent artists are fundamental to the success of the event. Each Festival receives more than 500 applications from throughout North America, in 17 different visual arts categories that range from wood to photography to ceramics, wearable art, jewelry and other categories. From these applicants, a jury comprised of members of the local art community ranks the top artisans in each category to participate in the Festival, and the highest ranking artists receive invitations to participate. During the Festival, a new jury selects the best overall artist and the top artist in each category and these winners receive cash honoraria awards.

As many as 350 artist booths line Mill Avenue and the surrounding streets presenting unique, and hand-made artwork that offers visitors a distinctive shopping experience.

While the Tempe Festival of the Arts focuses on visual art and the artists who create it, there also is a wide variety of other activity for guests to enjoy. Live entertainment provides fun for festival-goers. Performances throughout the venue keep audiences in high spirits throughout the day. In addition to the Festival Stage, street performers, food and beverage vendors, sponsor exhibits, and entertainment booths are set up for the amusement of Festival visitors. Visit the festival's three wine and beer gardens or sampling and purchase (not for on-site consumption) Arizona wines in our Cottage Edibles and Craft section.

Stop by the ASU Art Museum Ceramics Research Center and Brickyard Gallery, located at the Brickyard on Mill. Check out their latest exhibition, participate in an interactive community art project, and much more.
