10th annual Phoestivus returns to downtown Phoenix.

THURSDAY DECEMBER 12TH + 19TH, 5PM - 10PM

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 holiday markets feature locally grown and produced gifts for holiday giving from more than 200 local vendors that showcase a variety of locally grown, produced and prepared foods as well as hand-crafted gift items, jewelry and holiday decorations by local artisans. Last year more than 10,000 participants and shoppers gathered in downtown Phoenix for these two nights of local shopping. 

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), 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 event is free to attend and family friendly.
