Tucson Holiday Events

Christmas, New Year's, All Souls & More

It's true—we do string Christmas lights on our cacti. New Year's means menudo, Valentine's Day takes a backseat to rodeo, and barbecue season starts well before Memorial Day.

If you'll be in Tucson for a holiday, whether that's golfing for Father's Day or joining the All Soul's Procession in November, check out our special celebrations here.
