Phoestivus Market



Make your way to downtown Phoenix tonight where you can support your local community by purchasing a handcrafted gift from one of 130 local venders at the Phoestivus Open-Air Market. Besides shopping you can dine on some of the amazing local food trucks and drink some delicious Phoestivus Ale crafted specially by the Phoenix Ale Brewery. Ask yourself when else would I be able to witness one of the largest Phoestivus Poles? What is that you ask? It is an aluminum pole where you go to air grievances and demonstrate feats of strength. So make your way to downtown tonight and enjoy some Phoenix style holiday entertainment.
