This juried show promotes original art with all artists on site to engage visitors.  The festival takes advantage of the "snowbird" high tourism season in Arizona.  More than a quarter of the Festival's visitors come from outside Phoenix and outside Arizona to shop for one of a kind gifts.

Guests also find two stages with live entertainment, a chalk art event, a KIDS BLOCK and Kids Exhibition, wine tasting and roaming entertainment.   The Tempe Festival of the Arts offers a wide variety of amenities for artists including hospitality carts, booth sitting services, a large art delivery assistance program and a 24 hour roaming security patrol.
