Tucson Christmas and Hanukkah holiday events in December

Christmas and Hanukkah in Tucson is without the bitter winter cold, but also without the snow. That does make it better for outdoor holiday events.

All throughout December, both Christmas and Hanukkah events are held indoors and outside. Two of the most popular holiday events in Tucson are the 4th Avenue Street Fair and Winterhaven Festival of Lights. See more Holiday events for Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanza in Tucson.
