Join us on Saturday, October 14th from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. as we celebrate the Fall Season in Historic Downtown Glendale and Catlin Court at our 29th Annual Front Porch Festival & Old Towne Marketplace.
Begin at the Arizona Information Center (5836 W. Palmaire Ave.) to pick up the event activity list and the event map.
Many of the shops and eateries throughout the Historic Catlin Court and the Old Towne Entertainment Districts have special fall-themed activities planned for the day including themed make and take crafts, seasonal flavored menu items, specialty tea experiences, and Autumn inspired gifts and décor. Local artisans, makers and crafters will have displays and live art demonstrations all throughout the area.
Returning this year, enjoy a Scarecrow Stroll where you can spot uniquely decorated seasonal scarecrows on display at the front doors and porches of many of the shops and eateries.
You can also begin (or add to) the Downtown Glendale Charm Bracelet featuring an Autumn-themed charm.
October 21 & 22, 2023 (More info soon!)
Historic Downtown Glendale's Entertainment District is actually two distinct neighborhoods!
Old Towne's brick-trimmed sidewalks and glowing gaslights lead the way to the famous eateries, antique shops and specialty stores.
Historic Catlin Court features a wonderful collection of unique boutiques and one-of-a-kind eateries. Located in mid-century bungalows, the area is surrounded by picket fences and mature shade trees.
The pedestrian friendly area spans 10 square blocks. Free covered parking is available at the Palmaire Parking Structure located at 5835 W. Palmaire Ave.
We are a must see when visiting the Phoenix area. We look forward to seeing you soon in Historic Downtown Glendale - A Real Hometown Happening!
