Hyped as Arizona’s greatest street fair, the 2016 Phoenix Rainbows Festival & Street Fair is a celebration of the LGBTQ community and diversity in general. With 25,000 revelers expected, it’s second in attendance to the Phoenix Pride Festival in April. Presented by Phoenix Pride and PetSmart, the free festival is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 15, and Sunday, October 16, in Heritage Square Park, 113 North Sixth Street. The fest features 150 exhibitors, sponsors, and food vendors, two stages of live entertainment, and the second annual Phoenix Pet Pride.
