10 Best Holiday Attractions in Tucson to Bask in Southwestern Glow

Winter is the high season in Tucson, thanks to the city's great weather and unique Southwestern cultural attractions. The city comes alive from November through January with seasonal events full of holiday cheer.

One of Tucson's biggest winter events is the Fourth Avenue Winter Street Fair, which attracts thousands of holiday shoppers to the city's colorful Fourth Avenue District. More than 300 vendors set up shop on the avenue, with entertainment from street buskers and jugglers adding to the festivities.

For a uniquely Southwestern holiday light display, head over to Tohono Chul Park for Holiday Nights at Tohono Chul. For six special evenings, Tohono Chul is transformed into a winter wonderland complete with a million holiday lights and a special desert snowman.

Another great destination for holiday lights is the Tucson Botanical Garden, which hosts the annual Luminaria Nights at Tucson Botanical Garden. The garden grounds glow with the lights from traditional Southwestern paper lanterns. There are also twinkling lights, live music, and local food trucks dishing out holiday treats.

For a fun, family-friendly showcase of holiday spirit, head to downtown Tucson for the Annual Downtown Parade of Lights. The parade features a cavalcade of floats wrapped in twinkling holiday lights.
