Downtown Chandler is home to many unique eateries, local gift shops, and businesses like Commit Agency. If you’re visiting us during the cooler months, consider attending one or more of these events happening this winter in Downtown Chandler.

One of our favorite things to do during the wintertime in downtown Chandler is to visit the Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings. With multiple local vendors offering goods, beverages, fresh produce, and yummy food, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to eat and get a head start on your holiday shopping.

Tumbleweed Tree Lighting Ceremony 

 

If you’ve ever been to Downtown Chandler during the holidays, you have probably seen the iconic tumbleweed Christmas tree. Each year, city workers collect up to a thousand tumbleweeds to use in the construction of this giant Christmas-tree-shaped mound. After shaping, painting, and even adding loads of glitter, the tree is wound up with lights and ready to be lit each year in front of hundreds of onlookers. You can be an onlooker this year if you’re in town on December 7. For more information, visit Chandler’s website.

We have many talented local artists who live right here in Chandler, Arizona. One of the best ways to support them and their art is to visit the Chandler Art Walk happening in late December.
