Create your own moment
Something fun, unique and interesting is always going on here in Tucson, from street festivals to our world-class Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase. So when you’re planning a vacation, look at our calendar of events to find something that catches your interest.
See the Action
Take in the sounds of the Tucson Jazz Festival and the Tucson Desert Song Festival. Throw on your boots and head to the legendary La Fiesta de los Vaqueros-Tucson Rodeo & Parade. Walk with the legends of golf at the Cologuard Classic - PGA TOUR Champions Event in Tucson, and swing by the Vamos a Tucson Mexican Baseball Fiesta. And, all year round, you can cheer for the Cats at University of Arizona sporting events.
Be the Action
Take on the Tucson Marathon, a road-running race that’s said to be among the fastest and most scenic in the nation. If two wheels are your thing, there’s El Tour de Tucson, with tens of thousands of bicyclists circumnavigating the city or 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo, an event known as "the Burning Man of mountain biking". Or, for a participatory experience, you’ll never forget, there’s the All Souls Procession, an artistic celebration where thousands of people fill the streets of downtown to celebrate and remember those they have lost in the past year.
Whatever type of action you're looking for, Tucson has an event that will have you coming back for more.
