Village Make

  • Date: 11/18/2017 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Location: Old Town La Quinta

On November 18th, meet us at Village Make to experience the streets of Old Town La Quinta in a whole new way! Enjoy pop up creative art installations, music, free bicycle rentals, family friendly-activities and more at this sidewalk festival as you bike, walk, skate or play throughout the Village and the surrounding streets. Connect to the festivities on foot or by bike, scoot or skateboard.

Village Make runs from 12 a.m. -4 p.m., with live art and creative installations, pop up parklets and places to relax, as well as games and prizes as you explore all that Old Town has to offer.  

Village Make will showcase temporary improvements that make it easier, safer and more enjoyable for people to walk and bike. The improvements will showcase traffic circles and a mid-block crosswalk along Calle Tampico, an artsy green alley way, as well as temporary street furniture (including shaded places to sit and relax), parklets (small parks that extend the sidewalk), and cut through walking paths to make it easier to move through the Village.

Come and experience what these changes feel like and share your feedback on what you would like your streets to look like and feel like permanently!
