WHAT:    

The Valley’s best holiday event comes to life at the Garden with more than 8,000 hand-lit luminaria bags and musical groups. It’s the perfect holiday event to share with family, friends and out-of-town guests. This year’s event features Southwest elegance and the beauty of the Garden at night – a holiday experience not to be missed! Luminaria offers guest a choice of 16 nights in November and December.

Musical groups perform in rotation during the run of Luminarias.  Performers include the Mariachi Pasion, Arizona Folk Ensemble featuring members of Run Boy Run, Pick and Holler, Sahnas Brothers, Domingo DeGrazia & Beth Daunis, The Sugar Thieves, Duncan Family, Will Clipman, Traveler, and Adam Roberts Jazz Ensemble. Of course, Luminarias would not be complete without the Valley’s best Handbell Choirs.  Please visit dbg.org/luminarias for a nightly event schedule.
