Arts & Culture Bars & Nightlife Food, Restaurants & Dining Music & Events Spotlight Fara Illich November 6, 2013

Though local events and parties are usually the best, they can sometimes be difficult to find. Let’s fix that. This weekend happens to be packed with plenty of things to do, all with that exclusive local flair.
certifiedlocalCertified Local Fall Festival Saturday, Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
To kick-off this list of local events is Local First Arizona‘s annual fall festival that celebrates all things produced in Arizona. The event is free to attend, and there will be $1 food samples, $2 drink samples, food trucks, a beer and wine garden, and a variety of vendors selling gifts and products. There will also be a raffle with over 100 prizes donated by Local First Arizona members. This family-friendly (pet-friendly, too!) event will have crafts and activities for the mini-localists, as well as live entertainment by some of Arizona’s best musicians and performance artists.
Novembeer Every Saturday in November from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
That extra “e” isn’t a typo. The Fillmore Vig and Phoenix New Times have teamed up to bring you 10 beers for $10 every Saturday in November to celebrate–you guessed it–beer. Specifically, craft beer. Each weekend highlights a different style of craft beer. Go to one, or be a rebel, and go to them all. Here’s what you have to look forward to:

November 9: Stouts and Porters

November 16: IPAs and Pale Ales

November 30: Seasonal and Specialty Beers
