Oro Valley Festival of the Arts & Holiday Tree Lighting Dec 3&4, 2022

December 3, 2022 @ 10:00 am - December 4, 2022 @ 6:00 pm

Every year, Oro Valley hosts the Holiday Festival of the Arts & Tree Lighting Celebration. This two-day event brings holiday cheer through live performances, family art activities, and artisan vendors. But the main is event is the lighting of the glorious 35-foot tall Christmas tree.

This years event takes place December 3-4, 2022.

The Oro Valley Festival of the Arts and Holiday Tree Lighting is a two-day Festival that adds vibrancy to Oro Valley by creating opportunities for people of all ages, cultures and backgrounds to celebrate the arts. The mission of the Festival of the Arts is to connect art and the community by presenting an annual arts festival and by promoting the arts in the Southern Arizona community.

The Oro Valley Festival of the Arts has grown to become one of the largest fine art and craft festivals in the region, second only to the Fourth Avenue Street Fair.  The event engages a diverse demographic, ranging from ages 2-80, with programming suited to all age groups (ie. student performances, Tuba Christmas, Free Children’s Activities, Jazz, cultural foods, etc). The results create positive opportunities for artists to educate the public about the creation of artwork, and opportunities for the public to support artists financially.
