In The Making

Didn’t get exactly what you wanted this holiday season? Looking for a little craft-spiration? The Mesa Arts and Crafts Festival has you covered.

MACfest, not to be confused with the makeup, the computer, or some serious face-on-face action, features a wide selection of vendors and artists selling one-of-a-kind creations including paintings, jewelry, clothing, soaps,woodwork, metalwork, and more. Inspiring creativity and a strong sense of community, MACfest offers free admission and live music in the heart of downtown Mesa. This family-friendly affair happens on MacDonald between Main Street and Pepper Place Saturday, January 4, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The recurring fest takes place every first and third Saturday of the month from October through April.
