Food, music, and culture of Tucson’s south side will be celebrated at the 12th Avenue Music and Food Festival. The festival will take place on May 20 and May 21 from noon to 8 p.m. and noon – 6 p.m., respectively on South 12th Avenue, just north of Ajo Way.

While event planners have not yet provided an official participating vendor list, several are mentioned on the event page, including El Tewaku Hotdogs (Sonoran dogs), Aqui con Nacho (elote), American•Mexicano (raspados), Mona’s Fry Bread, and others. On top of the tasty treats, local musical talent, including tejano, country, and rock n’ roll, will be flourishing the street with their jams at this first-time street fair.

The event is also a fundraiser for Los Changitos Feos, local High Schools, and other local non-profits. Parking will also be available at Pueblo High School for $5, and all proceeds go directly to the school.

Also, if your bicycle needs some tender, loving care, bring it down from 10 a.m. – noon on Saturday, May 20 and Living Streets Alliance will repair it for free.
