I will warn people that these are local festivals, not worth traveling a long distance. It's all local or snowbird artists and typically the same artists at each festival. They recently took on the 5th ave festival which was run by a different promoter that no longer does shows, for good reason! This Scottsdale area is over saturated with art shows and the people who have money spend it at the galleries, not outdoor festivals! Jewelry and other niche crafts will do good here, but not fine art.
