The Oro Valley Holiday Festival of the Arts has quickly become one the largest regional art events in Southern Arizona. Held twice annually, this two day festival features up to 150 artists and exhibitors in all mediums, live music, food vendors, Holiday Tree Lighting and TUBA CHRISTMAS as well as family arts activities.
The Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance has partnered with the Town of Oro Valley to combine two well-beloved and award-winning events into one fantastic holiday weekend at the Oro Valley Marketplace.
The crowning moment of the festival will take place on Saturday evening, when the 35-foot Holiday tree towering over the Marketplace is lit at 6 PM. The celebration will feature live entertainment from local students, activities for children, free refreshments and cookie decorating, s'mores, and a special appearance by Santa from 4- 6 PM!
