Grand Avenue Arts & Preservation says
Selected as Best Arts Festival by New Times in 2015, this eclectic, non-traditional walking Festival highlights the arts, small businesses, adaptive re-use, recycling, community and the unique history of Grand Avenue.

We will once again be partnering with the Phoenix Annual Parade of the Arts (PAPA) with their grassroots community art parade. And will continue the tradition of fostering local bands; art installations in trees, on fences and other unexpected locations; historic building tours; fantasy flowers exhibited in the planters along the street created by students; mural projects; pop-up galleries; kid's activities; painted dumpsters; artist-designed “selfie stands”; wandering performers; and food trucks.

The "Trashy Hat Promenade" and "Recycled Fashion Show" remain colorful highlights of the day's activities with participants showing off fashions created from all kinds of recycled materials. Tours of Grand Avenue history & adaptive reuse projects remain a centerpiece, and this year the Walter Studios designed art vehicles will be combined with other exotic artist-designed Arizona “art cars” from around the state, including from the Art Car World Museum in Douglas, Arizona - all free to the public!
