Tempe events include an annual favorite, the Tempe Spring Festival of the Arts in Downtown Tempe, March 31-April 2.  More than 300 artisans display and sell original works of art in a multitude of media, including photography, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics and lots more.  Other highlights include live music, street performers, food and beverage vendors, sponsor exhibits, entertainment booths and multiple beer and wine gardens. New this year, kids can see works by their peers and create their own works of art in the Kids Block. The festival is free and takes place in Downtown Tempe along Mill Avenue and the adjacent streets. For more information, visit http://www.tempefestivalofthearts.com.
