Unplugged Lounge - NEW!

Kick your feet up and dig some of the area's greatest acoustic guitarists at our new Unplugged Lounge located smack dab in the middle of the intersection of 5th Street and Mill Avenue. Formerly called "Cameo Circle", Unplugged Lounge offers plenty of seating and shade to take in the legendary guitar from area artists.


ASU Ceramics Research Center

We are lucky to have the ASU Ceramics Research Center located in our downtown and grateful for all the ways they partner with us at Tempe Festival of the Arts!  Want to see demos and roll your sleeves up yourself? Here are all the ways to engage with Ceramics Research Center:

  • Check them out at Kids Block on 6th Street -- they'll have whirligig toys for kids to paint a Community Clay Garden.
  • Visit them at the CRC in the Brickyard, just steps off Mill Avenue
  • Watch live demonstrations at the intersection of 7th and Mill throughout the festival weekend
