St. Patrick’s Day kicks off the following activity suggestions for the greater Tucson area, stretching through the end of March. Whatever you’re into, you’ll find it here!
St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival
Downtown Tucson comes alive with Celtic tradition as the 32nd annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival brings the Irish spirit to Tucson! The parade starts at 11 a.m. Music and other entertainment run until 4:30 p.m.
Tucson Invitational Games: College Softball
Welcome to the second annual Division 2 Cactus Classic for softball at Lincoln Regional Park in sunny Arizona. The Cactus Classic Softball Tournament will be played March 1-31, 2019.
Wa:k Pow Wow
Team dances, hoop dance, drum contest, owl dance, inter-tribal dances, and much more are part of the experience at the annual Wa:k Pow Wow at Mission San Xavier del Bac, a National Historic Landmark, eight miles south of downtown Tucson. The event features inter-tribal activities and an artisan’s marketplace attended by Native American tribes from around the United States, all hosted by Southern Arizona’s Tohono O’odham Nation (Sonoran Desert People). (No cameras and no alcohol and/or drugs allowed).
La Cocina: Ms. Lana Rebel & Kevin Michael Mayfield
On most Wednesday evenings, La Cocina at Old Town Artisans hosts live music by Lana and Kevin, whose original songs quietly honor the simple beauty of early American folk, blues, and country. Guitars, sweet harmonies, and the occasional harmonica, fiddle, or singing saw blend together to result in a perfect tranquil soundtrack for a long road trip, or a late-night porch gathering on a quiet summer night.
The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber & Stephen Sondheim
The Tucson Symphony Orchestra presents two icons, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Sondheim, performing on one stage. Hear selections from Gypsy, West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, Phantom of the Opera and more, featuring the Tucson Symphony with a cast of Broadway singers, at the Tucson Music Hall.
