Phoenix Festival of the ArtsMore than a hundred artists and cultural organizations will paint Margaret T. Hance Park myriad shades of fun December 11-13, as the 4th Annual Phoenix Festival of the Arts unfolds.

Highlights of the free festival this year include the Phoenix Mural Project, an interactive community art project led by local artist Hugo Medina. Fest guests are encouraged to paint alongside the Valley's renowned creatives.

Entertainment runs the gamut from the Jamaican folk poetry and music of Marcus Wright and the acoustic stylings of The Bittersweet Way to a short-film festival, storytelling and dance. Food trucks will be on hand to fill growling bellys, and Hensley Beverage Company will present a beer and wine garden.
