Events & Festivals

From the Pima County Fair with its carnival and concerts to a festival for book-lovers and a PGA TOUR Champions Tour event, events and festivals tell Tucson's stories, all year round.

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 cyclingpro rodeoing, championship golfing, marathon running, and more!

Come together, join the celebration in Tucson.
