Events & Festivals

From an NCAA-certified collegiate football bowl game followed by a stellar outdoor jazz festival and an international gem-mineral-and-fossil showcase to a PGA TOUR Champions tournament, events and festivals tell Tucson's stories, all year round.

Come Together Over Events

Events in Tucson and Southern Arizona are a snapshot of the city itself: all cultures, all politics, all walks of life, coming together to celebrate what’s special about this place. Sometimes that's dinosaur bones at the biggest gem-mineral-and-fossil showcase of its kind, sometimes it’s painted skeleton faces at an offbeat processional performance. So, follow your heart, be yourself and see where an original Tucson event takes you.
