Local businesses in support of long running art festival after city denies permits


The Desert Arts Festival is usually held on several different weekends, bringing in about over 10,000 to Frances Stevens Park near downtown Palm Springs, but that may change in the near future.

The city denied the festival’s permits for March said it has outgrown its location.

Local artists who depend on this festival said they are stunned by the city’s changes.

According to the City of Palm Springs, during February’s event vendor cars were parked along Alejo Road which brought traffic concerns to those traveling downtown.

Local businesses are chiming in support. News Channel 3 will be talking to local business in downtown Palm Springs.
