Each October for the last 40 years, the Tucson Meet Yourself festival has celebrated the faces of the many ethnic groups in southern Arizona and northern Mexico that contribute to the rich cultural identity of the city. Experience a weekend of artwork, singing, dancing, and food from more than 30 different ethnicities in the downtown area. The variety of local performers bears testament to the region's cultural and ethnic diversity. Although this is essentially a celebration for locals, revolving around the preservation of living traditional arts, travellers in the region in October should find the festival fascinating.

Venue: Downtown Tucson

Date: October 2018 TBA
