The Oro Valley Festival of the Arts & Holidy Tree Lighting Celebration is the true essence of Creative Placemaking, cultivating the arts as an essential part of Oro Valley’s identity. The two-day festival is one of Southern Arizona’s largest community arts celebrations, with over 150 artisans, over 30 performances by student and local musicians, family arts activities, food trucks, and the TUBACHRISTMAS holiday play-along. Festivities culminate in the lighting of the Oro Valley holiday tree.

The festival brings the community together, stimulates the local economy, enhances surrounding non-arts businesses, and provides opportunities for local artists to promote their work. SAACA, in partnership with the Town of Oro Valley and the Vestar Oro Valley Marketplace, produce the event, which is also sponsored by local businesses and organizations.

Why?

The Holiday Festival of the Arts supported the SAACA goal of building community through arts programming by creating a venue for a large number of artisans to exhibit and sell their work in a supportive and professional environment.  Additionally, the event partners with both the Town of Oro Valley and the Oro Valley Marketplace to impact tourism and economic development in Oro Valley, supporting businesses, artisans and the community.
