Special Events

The City of Tucson is currently accepting special event applications for fall 2021 through spring/summer 2022 events.  All requests are being processed in the order they are received to ensure venue availability without conflicts.  Event applications should be submitted at least 60 days in advance, but not more than one year before the event date.  Applications submitted within 30 days of an event may not be accepted.

Events need to comply with Pima County Health Department guildelines.

For specific questions regarding park-based events, call 520-837-8043 or email specialevents@tucsonaz.gov.

If you had applied for a special event during the past year, your application was retained and we will be contacting you soon with further instructions.  Thank you for your patience.

Tucson is home to many great special events including the Tucson Rodeo Parade, 4th Avenue Street Fair, St. Patrick's Day celebration, El Tour de Tucson, and the All Souls Procession.

This Special Event webpage is intended to assist event organizers in planning their unique events.
