Christmas in July

Saturday, July 13, 2019

10 a.m. to 4 p.m.


Join us for a holly and jolly merry-filled day at the 13th Annual Christmas in July in Historic Downtown Glendale and Catlin Court.  Start your day at the Portable Information Booth (fondly nicknamed Mrs. PIB) located at 58th Drive and Palmaire to pick up the event activity list and the route map for the free event shuttle. Many of the renowned boutique stores, specialty shops and iconic eateries will feature festive treats, holiday gift ideas and merry make-and take-crafts. Get your shopping for gifts and decorations completed early and avoid the rush!  Visit with Santa Claus from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Glendale Flowers & Gifts. Enjoy the first-ever Cookie Crawl. Participating businesses will share their favorite cookies (while supplies last.)

We are hosting a Bottled Water Drive to benefit the Maricopa County Heat Relief Network. Please bring your donations of bottled water to the Portable Information Booth.

Christmas in July is sponsored by the Historic Downtown Glendale Merchants Association, Glendale Flowers & Gifts, Country Maiden and the Downtown Business Community.

Old Towne & Catlin Court Districts


Discover Historic Downtown Glendale which has been named as one of the country’s ten best places for shopping and has received national accolades for dining. 

Historic Downtown Glendale's Entertainment District is actually two distinct neighborhoods!

Old Towne's brick-trimmed sidewalks and glowing gaslights lead the way to the famous eateries, antique shops and specialty stores.

Historic Catlin Court features a wonderful collection of unique boutiques and one-of-a-kind eateries.  Located in mid-century bungalows, the area is surrounded by picket fences and mature shade trees. 

The pedestrian friendly area spans 10 square blocks. Free covered parking is available at the Palmaire Parking Structure located at 5835 W. Palmaire Ave.
