PrintHow can we create a sense of playfulness, fun and energy in the communities where we work and live? The answer could be as simple as coming together in a public space and fostering activity through programming, atmosphere, interaction – and food, of course!
This is the simple but deep-seated idea behind Wednesday Wind Up, a weekly park activation dreamed up by Downtown Phoenix Inc. and the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department.
This event not only spotlights the award-winning Civic Space Park, but also brings people together on a regular basis just to have fun.
Featuring food trucks, pop-up park games, activities, music, and great local vendors like Bunky Boutique, Coiffeur’s Salon, Nostra Style House and Maggie’s Thrift – just to name a few – this event has a little something for everyone.
Wednesday Wind Up kicks off Aug. 27 from 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Civic Space Park, located on Central Avenue between Polk and Fillmore streets right across from ASU Downtown.
But this event is only the beginning. The fun continues every Wednesday, with special Halloween-themed programming coming at the end of October. Check Downtown Phoenix’s Facebook and Twitter pages for weekly updates.
