Last weekend, Tempe had its annual Spring Festival of the Arts on Mill Ave. Like most of you, I walked around and left with some new wall décor. I was pretty bummed out when I woke up on Monday morning, thinking that all the fun was over. But then I remembered that Feast of the Street is this Saturday, April 13th in downtown Phoenix on First Street between Taylor Place and Moreland.
Feast of the Street is based off of London’s Feast on the Bridge. It should be an amazing time and I can’t wait to check it out. They’ll have a half-mile long dining table, where you can sit back with some new friends and enjoy food that was locally harvested and prepared.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. They’ll have food demonstrations, story telling and tasting stations, in addition to food trucks. Favorite local restaurants like Matt’s Big Breakfast, Carly’s Bistro and Pita Jungle will be there, along with many others. Not interested in food? No problem. Head over to the Cityscape Beer Garden. Tempe favoriteFour Peaks Brewing Company and Lumberyard Ale will featuring their handcrafted beers.
This event is FREE – that’s right – free and there’s free parking as well. This is all made possible by the ASU Art Museum and the Desert Initiative, Roosevelt Row CDC and the artists Clare Patey and Matt Moore. Patey and Moore also collaborated on an exhibition called Cu²⁹: Mining for You, at the ASU Art Museum through May 11.
So head down to Feast on the Street this Saturday, and if you see me, be sure to say hello. It’s guaranteed to be a great time.
