12k’s of Christmas Annual Run

For those who enjoy running for fun or competitively, you won’t want to miss this run! It’s an annual 12k held nearby in Gilbert that has been held for the past ten years. A portion of the proceeds goes to help local animals through organizations like Maricopa County Animal Care and Control and The Arizona Pet Project. This fun run is a way to join with others in a spirit of the holidays, and to help out your community at the same time. You can even dress up in a holiday-themed costume to do it if you want!  


Holiday markets have been an annual tradition in Germany since as early as 1384. Luckily, you won’t have to travel across the world to experience one because the Arizona Center for Germanic Culture is hosting one less than an hour away in Cave Creek! Spend the afternoon browsing through this open-air market with vendors who sell handicrafts and holiday decorations, as well as traditional holiday market foods like bratwurst and hot cider. Don’t miss this year’s market on December 8th and 9th!
