Celebrate Tucson’s 237th birthday on August 20 at the El Presidio Grounds, 133 W. Washington (between Church Ave. and Court Ave. downtown). There will be usual flag raising, birthday cake eating, plus tamales too this year. Troubadour Ted Ramirez will be entertaining.
Funding ran out to continue the Tucson’s Birthday website & the numerous listings from prior years, so District 5 Supervisor Richard Elias’ office took over to post events via his website (click here) & use the link on the top for “Birthday”.
And if you want earlier birthday cake, here’s an event for Saturday August 18:
Southern Arizona Transportation Museum Birthday Party at The Depot
When: Sat, August 18, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Where: Southern Arizona Transportation Museum, 414 North Toole Ave., Tucson, AZ.
Description: We are proud participants in the Arizona Centennial Celebration. Celebrate at the Depot with cake, the Mayor, and engine 1673. The mayor will be speaking at 11:00, and cutting the Birthday cake !
Happy Birthday Tucson!
