Get Your PHX and Phoenix Public Market present the 5th Annual Phoestivus Market

Two Nights of Open Air Markets and Special Events to Promote Local Holiday Shopping

Phoestivus will be returning once again for two fun Wednesday evenings of holiday cheer on December 10 and 17, 2014 from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm at 14 E. Pierce Street in Downtown Phoenix.

Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase unique gifts from 130 local vendors. The event will also feature food trucks, the World’s Largest Phoestivus Pole (“as far as we know”), Pheats of Strength, Airing of Grievances, holiday entertainment, and much more. Last year’s Phoestivus event saw over 2000 attendees on each of the two nights!

Bring your friends and family to enjoy dinner from the food trucks, as well as food and cocktails from the Phoenix Public Market Café including the always popular Phoestivus Ale from Phoenix Ale Brewery. Ruby Ride will also be available for transportation to and from the event by calling 602-615-0739.

“We put this event together every year as a way to support locally-owned businesses and to support healthy food through the Phoenix Public Market. It’s also a great way to celebrate our community and just act like Phoestivus-lovin’ goofballs for a couple nights,” said Phoestivus Bürgermeister, Ken Clark.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Phoenix Public Market, a program of Community Food Connections, a 501c3 non-profit organization.

“We are happy to host the Phoestivus Market for the fifth year in a row”, said Dan Klocke, Community Food Connections board member. “Our mission is to create a downtown community gathering place that supports local, small farmers and businesses to strengthen our community. It’s particularly important to promote the message of supporting local businesses as people shop for holiday gifts.”
