For two full days, the 24th Annual ArtFest of Scottsdale brings the best of the artists’ community to the Valley of the Sun. On November 18th and 19th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Scottsdale Civic Center Plaza bustles with more than 180 fine artists selling their masterpieces, local musicians and food vendors representing a variety of cultural tastes.
Just in time for holiday gift giving season, ArtFest of Scottsdale features fine arts in a variety of mediums such as metal, paint, clay and glass, as well as crafts and wares including jewelers and sculptors. Two stages feature live music from artists such as Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame inductee and local music legend Walt Richardson, among other musicians representing genres such as jazz, country and rock and roll. ArtFest also encompasses an interactive kids’ zone, local non-profit book sale and other local community organizations such as Creciendo Unidos and the Boys and Girls Club that help with the event.
