Diverse Cultural Events


The Tucson Convention and Visitors Bureau provides a major events calendar to inform residents and visitors about the great variety of cultural events that help to shape the unique character of our region’s identity.  These major events range from competitive sports, including golf, soccer, cycling and professional rodeo to a world class Gem, Mineral and Fossil showcase that draws collectors, artists, hobbyists, and the merely curious from nearby cities and others half-way across the globe.

Some events are local favorites. With its 39th annual festival in 2012, Tucson Meet Yourself continued  to demonstrate its commitment to the celebration of “the living traditional arts and expressions of everyday life of the folk and ethnic communities” of our region. This special event combines artistic display, presentation and performance amidst an ever-expanding variety of food and drink that reflects the tremendous international/intercultural diversity of peoples that have made this region their home.
