Phoenix Flea on Small Business Saturday

There will also be food trucks and artisan food vendors. The free, fourth annual Phoenix Flea on Small Business Saturday is being billed as their biggest market yet, and will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 26. Visit the Facebook event for more details.

Riders in the Sky: Salute to Roy Rogers
The King of the Cowboys is being well remembered in the East Valley. Riders in the Sky: Salute to Roy Rogers pays tribute to the music, movie, and TV legend in what other that colorful western garb. Presented and hosted by the Mesa Arts Center, Riders in the Sky is a 90-minute, multimedia show featuring live music, clips of Roy, Trigger, and Gabby Hayes, and plenty of yodeling. The show runs from 8 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, November 26, in the Ikeda Theater. Tickets range from $27 to $37. Visit the Mesa Arts Center website for more.

420 Yoga in the Park
This is everything it sounds like it’s going to be. The 420 Yoga in the Park meetup joins medical marijuana with a beginner's yoga class during what’s likely to be a beautiful day outdoors, and features a guest Yogi. It’s free to show up, and hosted by Free Arizona and Phoenix Cannabis Coalition, but you may want to BYOM. The event runs at Steele Indian School Park from 4 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, November 27. And for what it's worth, there’s a light rail stop at the nearby Indian School Road/Central Avenue station. Visit the Facebook event for further details.

Eva Hesse
Eva Hesse was a postwar artist and pioneer of the post-minimalist movement who died of a brain tumor in 1970 after a short but forceful career in the New York art scene of the 1960s. Eva Hesse, a film by Marcie Begleiter under Zeitgeist Films, is a 108-minute, or feature-length, dedication to the impressive female artist, and will be screened during the No Festival Required Independent Cinema at Chartreuse Gallery in Bragg's Pie Factory from 3 to 4:45 p.m. and again from 5 to 6:45 p.m. on Sunday, November 27. Both salon screenings offer 50 seats, and tickets are $10 a pop. Visit the No Festival Required website or Facebook event for further details.
