Agave Heritage Festival

Postponed: Stay tuned for new dates.

Agave Heritage Festival: Food, History and Spirits

Agave Heritage Festival has been postponed and will not take place April 23-May 5, 2020 as originally scheduled. All purchased tickets will be honored for future event dates. Please stay tuned for more information.


Tucson is a premiere destination for all things agave. Discover and celebrate the cultural, commercial and culinary significance of the versatile and, to many, vital agave plant at the exceptional Agave Heritage Festival.

After getting started as a tequila-lover’s Cinco de Mayo celebration in 2008, Agave Heritage Festival has evolved into a unique event rooted in the historical and cultural significance of the agave plant. With seminars, trade shows, field trips, world-class culinary events, tastings of fine spirits unavailable in the United States, and an art exhibit, the festival is realizing its true potential. There are opportunities to learn about the plant’s inextricable role in the culture and history of the Arizona-Mexico borderlands and beyond. The incredible variety of interesting activities and locations are led by an international panel of expert speakers and presenters. The festival is headquarted at and presented by historic Hotel Congress in downtown Tucson.
