Happy 244th Old Pueblo!

You won’t want to miss these official events that celebrate our city’s birthday.

 

Tucson Presidio Birthday

Celebrate the 244th anniversary of the founding of the Tucson Presidio at the Southern Arizona Transportation Museum. Enjoy a mayoral proclamation, mariachi music, Chinese Lion Dance, an appearance by the Greater Southern Arizona Chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers, and classic Mexican and American folk music by Ted Ramirez. Ramirez, a Tucson native, is a direct descendent of the region’s first Spanish families, and was Tucson’s official troubadour in 2001. After the event, stop by the railroad art exhibits next door in the Amtrak lobby, and don’t miss the menu at Maynards Market & Kitchen.
