Scottsdale's Holiday Bazaars

While malls are the natural go-to spot for holiday shopping (and no doubt, Scottsdale corners the market when it comes to shopping centers), don’t miss out on these unique events that are created specifically to help you find the perfect gifts to put under the tree!


Holidays at the Heard: Ornament Marketplace

Give a gift that they’ll treasure for years to come with a hand-crafted ornament from the Heard Museum’s Ornament Marketplace. You’ll find Native American ornaments in all shapes and sizes but be sure to check out the limited-edition signature ornament created by artist Kee Yazzie. These unique ornaments (only 30 are available!) feature sterling silver disk and a piece of Sleeping Beauty turquoise.

Dates: Nov. 23 – 25, 2018
Times: Fri. and Sat., 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sun, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.


Feliz Navidad Fiesta

New to Scottsdazzle, the city’s month-long celebration for the holidays, the Feliz Navidad Fiesta takes place in the Historic Old Town District.  The Fiesta itself will offer tamales and poinsettias for sale but the lion’s share of your shopping should take place in the quaint shops tucked along Main Street. Stop at Gilbert Ortega Galleries for Kachina dolls, Kactus Jock for Arizona-inspired souvenirs, and Bischoff’s Shades of the West for Pendleton Blankets.

Date: Dec. 1, 2018
Times: 12 – 4 p.m.

Pueblo Grande Indian Market

Shop more than 100 booths featuring authentic Native American fine art and collectibles at the Pueblo Grande’s annual Indian Market. You’ll want to carve out time to explore the museum and interpretive trails before participating in activities such as petroglyph making, corn grinding and gourd painting. Food trucks will be on hand to dish up Indian Fry Bread and other delicious treats!

Date: Dec. 8 – 9, 2018
Times: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.


Scottsdazzle ArtWalk

Enjoy festive lighting, decorated shop windows, luminarias and live demonstrations as you stroll the streets during the Scottsdazzle ArtWalk. This free event is the perfect place to purchase a piece of fine art. There are galleries and artwork to fit every style and budget.

Date: Dec. 13, 2018
Times: 6:30 – 9 p.m.
