Oro Valley Festival of the Arts

December 2, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm MST


Join the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance and the Town of Oro Valley as they partner to present the largest holiday community celebration of arts and culture in Southern Arizona at the Oro Valley Marketplace.

The Oro Valley Festival of the Arts & Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration is the essence of creative placemaking, cultivating the arts as an essential part of Oro Valley’s identity. The two-day festival is one of Southern Arizona’s largest community arts celebrations, with over 130 artisans, over 30 performances by student and local musicians, family art activities, food trucks, the TUBACHRISTMAS holiday play-along, and free photos with Santa in front of the Golder Ranch Fire Truck!

Festivities culminate in the Oro Valley holiday tree lighting at 6 PM on December 3. The festival brings the community together, stimulates the local economy, enhances surrounding businesses, and provides opportunities for local artists to promote their work. SAACA produces the annual event in partnership with the Town of Oro Valley and Oro Valley Marketplace, a Town West Realty property, with additional support by the Lisa Bayless Team, 94.9 Mix FM, and by local businesses and media organizations.
