Celebrate 46 years of food, entertainment, and culture downtown at the annual Tucson Meet Yourself Folklife Festival this weekend, Oct. 11-13. This free, three-day event recognizes the living traditional arts and expressions of everyday life of the folk and ethnic communities of the multi-national Arizona-Sonora region.
Hours are Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tucson Meet Yourself is centered on Jacome Plaza, outside the Tucson Public Library, and runs along North Stone and Church avenues, between East Congress and Alameda streets.
The event features artisans, food vendors, exhibitors, performers, musicians, dancers, and children’s activities that celebrate diversity. Reach the festival and downtown via the Sun Link streetcar from points along the University of Arizona, 4th Avenue, and the Mercado District. Some road restrictions will be in effect.
