Hispanic Heritage Events in Tucson

¡Viva Tucson!  A Hispanic Heritage Month Fiesta

September 15th - October 15th


September 15th marks a day of vast importance in Tucson – it’s the start of Hispanic Heritage Month and the evening that Mexican Independence Day celebrations begin.

As a cultural melting pot located just 60 miles north of the US-Mexico border, Tucson is proud of its deep-rooted Hispanic heritage. From the food and the history to the music and the art, the story of Hispanic culture in America is the story of Tucson. So when Hispanic Heritage Month kicks off each year in September, it's easy to understand why Tucson is the perfect place to celebrate.

¡Viva Tucson! means you can dance to the music, taste the flavors, and be immersed in Tucson's unique Hispanic culture during this month of celebration – and all year round.
