Mark December 14 and 21 on your calendar -- Get Your PHX and Phoenix Public Market are hosting Phoestivus for the rest (or all) of us who need to get a little local gift shopping accomplished in the company of local food vendors and live music.
The festivities go from 4 to 8:30 p.m., and you can keep an eye out for the Phoestivus pole, an airing of grievances, feats of strength, holiday carolers, and more.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
