The holidays are here and Desert Ridge Marketplace is excited to bring the community a dynamic line-up of festive and family-friendly events throughout December.

The Ember Lounge at The District Dome
This season, Desert Ridge Marketplace has launched a brand-new attraction, a striking 50-foot spherical dome, designed to bring unique and immersive seasonal pop- up activations to the property’s courtyard. Guests aged 21-plus are invited to experience the first concept inside The District Dome called The Ember Lounge. Upon entering, guests will be transported into a captivating night under the stars with a cozy dining atmosphere, whimsical craft cocktails, chef-driven menu offerings, and a state-of-the-art projection show, taking guests through a journey beginning with a glowing Arizona sunset over the Grand Canyon, moving through a snowy evergreen forest, passing the Aurora Borealis, closing with starry skies, galaxies, and beyond. The Ember Lounge is a limited-time experience that guests can enjoy through December 31.

Holiday Tree
Families around the Valley can make the holidays more festive with a visit to Desert Ridge Marketplace’s 40-foot holiday tree, featuring all new décor this year. Guests can enjoy magical snowfall and visits from the Grinch, his dog, Max, and none other than Santa and Mrs. Claus.

12 Days of Snowfall
Experience 12 days of magical snowfall inside The District from Dec. 13 through Dec. 23 at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. On Christmas Eve, it will snow every hour from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. This is a timeless tradition that has been enjoyed by the community for over 10 years.

Sip & Stroll
Put a holiday spin on your shopping this season and enjoy Sip & Stroll throughout The District. Enjoy a cocktail from one of the participating restaurants and experience all of the new holiday décor, festive community performance, snowfall, and more.

Christmas Angel Tree
Support the Salvation Army Christmas Angel Tree located in front of Dave and Busters through December 22. The Angel Tree contains tags with the name, age, clothing size, and toy requests of an underprivileged child. Pick a tag, purchase an item, and give a child a gift they could only dream of!

New Holiday Décor
This season, Desert Ridge Marketplace will also reveal the all-new custom décor that will transform the property into a desert wonderland, complete with 8-foot wreaths, glowing meridians, and snowflakes displayed throughout the center, and a spectacular tree, all in an elegant and sophisticated color scheme that compliments the property’s desert tones.

Desert Ridge Marketplace is located at 21001 N. Tatum Blvd., in Phoenix.
