State of the Arts

More than 400 booths will line the Mill Avenue District, bordered by Rio Salado Parkway and University Drive, this weekend during the annual Tempe Fall Festival of the Arts. Artists from across the country will sell woodwork, photography, ceramics, wearable art, and more to thousands of visitors and holiday shoppers on the prowl for unique gifts.

Live entertainment includes musicians on the Festival Jazz Stage, as well as street performers. Fill up on wine by the glass, bottle, or case at the Arizona Wine Festival booths, sample beers from local microbreweries, and munch on food from local vendors, and view sponsored exhibitions.

Admission is free, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Tempe-based charities. Booths will be open from 10 a.m. to dusk.

Fri., Dec. 2, 10 a.m.; Sat., Dec. 3, 10 a.m.; Sun., Dec. 4, 10 a.m., 2011
