Events & Festivals

From living history days at Tucson Presidio Museum, between October and April, to El Tour, Arizona's longest running bicycle event, in November, festivals and events tell Tucson's stories in every season.

Come Together at Tucson Events

Events in Tucson and Southern Arizona are a snapshot of the region itself: all cultures, politics and walks of life coming together to express creativity and celebrate what’s special about this vibrant region. Sometimes it's a toast to the best Mexican food north of the border and a tribute to Mexican folk music and dance. Sometimes it's a reading-and-literacy field day. Other times, it's the world's biggest gem-mineral-and-fossil showcase of its kind, an offbeat processional performance, and a three-day salute to local ethnic food. It's also about perimeter cycling, pro rodeoing, championship golfing, marathon running, and more!

Come together, join the celebration in Tucson.
