Holidays in Downtown

Get ready

for joyous 70-degree weather.

Blistering cold? No, thank you. We’ll take free outdoor movies, festive open-air markets and ice skating in the heart of the city. Some say this is the most wonderful time of the year. Here in Downtown Phoenix, we actually mean it.

Check out our list below of the most festive and fabulous events of the season, and let’s ring in the Holidays in Downtown. Or for a complete list of things to do, check out the DTPHX Calendar.
