Acting Out

Supporting the arts in downtown Phoenix benefits the creative community, sure. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t fun.

Picture yourself drinking a few glasses of wine on a sleek balcony overlooking the city while listening to a live band playing below. Sounds pretty good, right? You can do both (and a whole lot more) at the second annual Herberger Theater Festival of the Arts.

Over 20 performance groups from around the Valley will entertain, serenade, inspire, and otherwise wow audiences. Chow down on food truck grub, gaze at the finest local art -- just don’t forget the wine. For an extra $10, you can sample a flight of three wines in an upstairs gallery and watch the revelers below.

Entrances to the festival will be located on Monroe Street at 2nd and 3rd Streets. The Arizona Center will provide free parking for festival-goers in its garage at Fifth and Fillmore streets.
