The SAACA Festival of the Arts & Tree Lighting will be held two days, Saturday, December 2 and Sunday, December 3, 2023.
The Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance (SAACA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the creation, preservation and advancement of the Arts. SAACA strengthens the bonds between people, place and purpose through collaborative, arts-driven experiences.
Southern Arizona has long served as a hub for art and culture. But despite the profusion of talent, our creative individuals found difficulties in making a living from their work and sharing it with the community.
We created SAACA (formerly the Greater Oro Valley Arts Council) to address these needs by cultivating programming that puts a spotlight on our local creatives and celebrates our unique culture, while providing direct opportunities for artists to make and sell their work.
To date, SAACA has created over 300,000 arts-driven experiences, from innovative community festivals and cultural celebrations to creative sector development, and accessible arts enrichment programs. We continue to grow both our footprint and our impact as we pursue our mission of strengthening the bonds between people, place and purpose.
Be the first to know what's fresh, new, and on the horizon.
