If you love the magic of holiday lights, then mark your calendar for Glendale’s award-winning holiday festival, which has become a family tradition for so many across the Valley and state. The stunning display of 1.5 million LED lights will illuminate sixteen blocks of Historic Downtown Glendale, making it the largest free holiday light display in Arizona. Visitors of all ages will delight in holiday entertainment, delectable food, hand-crafted holiday gifts, a children’s winter wonderland and petting zoo, shopping and, of course, visits with Jolly Ol’ St. Nick. The festive stage show will feature special honored guests to help flip on the lights, as it counts down to the lighting ceremony on Friday evening, Nov. 25 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Free admission and free shuttles make this award-winning event family friendly. During opening weekend only, free shuttle transportation is provided from Glendale Community College (north parking lots.).


The holiday lights and entertainment continue with more events in downtown Glendale, each Friday and Saturday through Dec. 17, from 6-10 p.m. each evening:

  • 2-3: Glendale’s Jingle Bell Rockin’ Nights
  • 9-10: Glendale’s Winter Wonderland Weekend
  • 16-17: Glendale’s Spirit of Giving Weekend


The glittering magic of Glendale’s holiday display remains lit nightly through Jan. 7, from 5-11 p.m. each evening. Historic Downtown Glendale is located at 58th and Glendale avenues. For more information, call the Special Event Hotline at 623-930-2299, or visit www.glendaleaz.com/events.
