Weekend Holiday Events in Phoenix, Arizona

There's a chill in the air, which doesn't happen often in the Valley of the Sun, making this is the perfect weekend to bundle up in your rarely used mittens and scarves and head out for some holiday fun.


First Fridays in Phoenix is taking part in holiday magic over at the Science Center where they are auctioning gingerbread houses benefiting Phoenix Neighborhood Housing Services. Of course you'll also probably find some cool holiday gifts for friends and family.

APS Holiday of Lights Parade is happening Saturday, rain or shine.

Tempe Festival of the Arts is happening and although it's not specifically a holiday event, you can definitely get some holiday shopping done there.

Glendale Glitters is still going strong offering the perfect place to enjoy some hot beverages while walking amidst twinkling decoration and enjoying festival performances.

Holiday Pet Festival is being presented by the Tranquility Trail Animal Sanctuary on Saturday. Come on, take Fido out for some fun this weekend.

Where are you spending your time this weekend?




  1. Hi -
    I'm working with a start-up for food bloggers in Arizona called Tabelog (www.tabelog.us). They're a subsidiary of the largest company in Japan Tabelog.com (similar to Yelp here in the US).
    We’re bringing their annual restaurant awards to the US that are judged solely by a panel of local food bloggers (all online). The winning restaurants get a framed 2015 award and the food bloggers get an 'official judge' icons/etc. and related PR for their blog. We’re looking for bloggers from the Arizona area to invite as an official judge. Is this something that you would be interested in? My email address is awards@tabelog.us.

    Thanks in advance!
