Celebrate the return of the monsoon rainy season at El Dia De San Juan Fiesta! This festival has been held for many years on June 24 - the feast day of St. John the Baptist - and, according to tradition, marks the start of Tucson's annual monsoon rainy season. During the celebration, people gather west of the Santa Cruz Riverbed, south of West Congress Street at the Mercado San Agustín Annex, for a procession and an appeal for summer monsoon rains, a blessing, and a festival featuring live music, dancing, games, food, and refreshments.
