Tucson Meet Yourself has stories and more storiesby Penelope Starr on Oct. 10, 2011, under Arts, community
The Story Stage schedule* is jam packed. For three days you can be a story-glutton at Tucson Meet Yourself Folklife Festival. African stories, Irish stories, Tucson stories, Sonoran stories, Icelandic stories, Animal stories, Celebrity stories and the list goes on. It will be hard to pull yourself away long enough to go get some of the incredible food that Tucson “Eat” Yourself is so well known for.
And the Story Stage is just one of seven stages! The Festival, whos mission is to “research document interpret and present the living traditional arts and expressions of everyday life of the folk and ethnic communities of the multi-national Arizona-Sonora region,” stretches from above Alameda Street down to the Tucson Convention Center. It’s huge. The theme is year is “Traditions of Health and Wellness” and you certainly will get your exercise walking from place to place because you won’t want to miss a thing. Good thing it’s three days, from October 14 through the 16th. Here’s a link to a Map.
See you at the story stage!
