One of our favorite events is setting up right outside the MTCVB office in La Placita Village.
This weekend, the 38th annual Tucson Meet Yourself will sprawl across 60 acres of downtown and draw thousands for a weekend full of fun, food, culture and folklife celebration.
Ethnic food, art exhibits, demonstrations, music and dance performances presented by the more than 64 different cultural groups living in the Southern Arizona-Sonora, Mexico borderland region will be on the program.
This grassroots celebration of the Southwestern cultural landscape attracts more than 100,000 people to downtown Tucson, annually. Earlier this year, the festival was recognized for shining a light on folk and traditional arts with two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
