Admission: TENWEST Impact Festival offers a variety of event and ticket types to fit the needs of our attendees and the community.


TENWEST Impact Festival helps the curious and the impassioned solve the great economic, social, cultural and environmental challenges facing our communities. Through ten days of exhibitions, talks, and interactive experiences, national experts and local heroes will inspire the ideas and facilitate the connections that will empower us to act. TENWEST began in 2015 as Tucson’s answer to South By Southwest, but has since developed into something much more uniquely Tucson. This October, 15,000 local, regional, and national attendees will come together to focus on solutions for creating social, environmental, and economic impact. The majority of TENWEST activities take place at the Tucson Convention Center, however, there are additional events that happen all over downtown Tucson locations.
Tucson Meet Yourself (on October 11-13) will partner with TENWEST Impact Festival and be the gateway event for 10+ days of innovative programming. The TENWEST Pavilion at Tucson Meet Yourself features:

  • Local First Roadshow Tent with micro-workshops, crafts, games, and education
  • Heritage Popup Market highlighting regional heritage foods and drinks
  • TENWEST Discovery Lounge with raffles and prizes
