30 Nov Top Flagstaff Holiday Events & Festivities
Unlike down in the Valley of the Sun, Southern California or the other nearby desert-dwellers, Flagstaff provides a true holiday season. From beautiful snowfall, colors changing with the season, and pines as far as they eye can see, Flagstaff is truly a winter wonderland. So it’s no surprise that Flagstaff is home to some truly awesome holiday events and festivities–from festivals, light shows, and art shows to a portal to Santa’s workshop itself!
