Holidays in Downtown Featuring Fun Festivities and Near-Perfect Weather

Blistering cold?

No, thank you.

We’ll take free outdoor movies, fun holiday markets and ice skating in the heart of the city. Some might say this is the most wonderful time of the year. Here in Downtown Phoenix, we actually mean it.

With an abundance of free outdoor events and near-perfect weather, it’s hard to know where to begin. Lucky for you, we found the most interesting, entertaining and family-friendly things to do this season. From the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony to the Phoestivus Open-Air Market, there’s a little something for everyone. So check back often for fun ideas to fill your free time and inspire your weekends — or search our events calendar for a full list of holiday happenings.
