1st Grand Avenue Festival to celebrate Phoenix culture, art, history, and adaptive reuse

Grand Avenue Festival[Source: Grand Avenue Festival organizers] — This is an exciting time in downtown Phoenix and one of the hot spots is Lower Grand Avenue.  All along the Lower Grand Avenue corridor, independent locally-owned businesses, galleries, performance venues, and artist studios are flourishing in a unique, diverse environment.  The area prominently features the creative, adaptive re-use of historic buildings, helping to preserve Phoenix’s heritage.

To increase awareness of this pedestrian-friendly arts and retail district, we are pleased to announce the first annual Grand Avenue Festival, to be held on Saturday, September 26, 2009.  The event is a celebration of the vibrant culture, art, history and adaptive re-use of the Lower Grand Avenue small business district and adjoining neighborhoods.  The festival will include historic building tours, fashion shows, music performances featuring local talent, and a variety of other activities throughout the day.
