Your Guide to the 6th Annual Grand Avenue Festival in Phoenix

With this year's dizzying array of activities, we figured you could use a little help making your game plan for this year's Grand Avenue Festival, which takes place from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, November 8.

The festival folks have partnered with the 9th annual Phoenix Annual Parade of the Arts (PAPA), so you'll find this year's shindig is jam-packed with arts, eats and other feats presented by Valley artists, performers, and small business types.

Overachievers can print their own festival guide ahead of time, then curl up with a highlighter to mark all their "must-do" moments. The rest of us can snag a festival guide at the main information table located at Oasis on Grand, in front of Bragg's Pie Factory, or at La Melgosa at 1023 Grand Avenue.
