A year of memorable Tucson moments
Here's to a year of memorable moments in Tucson, where you can enjoy unique events like Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase in February and All Souls Procession in November, with monthly local happenings in between. Check out these highlights or browse our calendar of events to find something right for you.
Savor the glorious sounds of jazz at Tucson Jazz Festival and classical voice at Tucson Desert Song Festival, both start in January. Pull on your boots for the legendary La Fiesta de los Vaqueros-Tucson Rodeo & Parade or slip on your spikes for the Pro-Am at the star-studded Cologuard Classic - PGA TOUR Champions Event in Tucson before heading for the hills and 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo, our zany mountain bike endurance race, all in February.
With desert wildflower blooms, spring brings the USA's longest-running festival of Spanish-language films, Tucson Cine Mexico, along with one of the best literacy festivals, Tucson Festival of Books, both in March. At the Agave Heritage Festival, Tucson International Mariachi Conference, and Tucson Folk Festival, all in April, you can sample our cultural heritage, food, music and more. Bring the family in August for a bonding-adventure in our great outdoors at two Summer Birding Festivals.
Swing by our bilingual "party in the stands" at Vamos a Tucson Mexican Baseball Fiesta, and discover Tucson's movie-making legacy along with new indie films at Film Fest Tucson, both in October. Our 100-mile spin around the city's perimeter in November, El Tour de Tucson, is a favorite of pro cyclists, and our scenic Boston-qualifer in December, the Tucson Marathon, is a best-kept-secret among runners of all skills. All year round, at University of Arizona sporting events, we cheer our hometown Cats. Join us any time!
