Do you see Downtown Tucson shimmering in the distance? It’s not a mirage. It’s the Downtown Building Illumination Program, back for the third year. Downtown Tucson Partnership coordinates with private property owners to line the tops of their buildings with commercial grade LED lights. The result is an illuminated and striking silhouette of Tucson’s unique skyline visible from miles away. Nearly 60 downtown buildings are participating this year, helping make Downtown Tucson a must-visit destination for the holidays.

The Building Illumination Program is part of the larger Desert Nights Downtown Lights promotion, featuring five weeks of festivities in Downtown Tucson.


Property owners, property managers and businesses interested in illuminating their buildings should review the program flier. Contact
