Palm Springs VillageFest Every Thursday Night.
VillageFest takes place in downtown Palm Springs on Palm Canyon Drive almost every Thursday night. They close Palm Canyon Drive to cars and convert downtown to a walking street fair with entertainment, food, and dozens of booths selling local handmade crafts.
Recommendation: There are parking structures near the Palm Springs Art Museum on Belardo. Palm Canyon will be closed, so you will need to access Belardo from Ramon or Amado. Or park on Tahquitz Canyon Way near Sherman’s and it’s a short walk. Stroll the street fair and grab a bite at one of the booths, or make a reservation ahead of time at one of the downtown restaurants. Brickworks has a few balconies over the street that are nice (ask for availability when making your reservation). Zin American Bistro has great food and patio seating at the street level. Or for a fun after-dinner drink, go to Tonga Hut and sit on the upstairs balcony.
