It’s that time of year again to meet up, eat, and treat yourself.
The 45th annual Tucson Meet Yourself is taking over downtown for a weekend of fun from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. on Friday, October 12 – Saturday, October 13, and 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 14.
Besides the substantial amount of food and being known as “Tucson Eat Yourself” around the town, there are a couple of things you should know about the event.
Firstly, if you have never been you’re really missing out. Secondly, it’s a folklife festival that truly displays the identity, artistry, and cultural significance of the Arizona-Sonoran region and beyond.
As was seen in previous years, Tucson Meet Yourself is designated to a certain area, and this year it’s going to be absorbing four city blocks by the Jacomé Plaza that’s in front of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library.
There’s going to be plenty to learn during the Culture Kitchen: Passing Traditions & Food Justice Expo, too. It’s a food demo showcasing the passing of food knowledge through demonstrations and information on southern Arizona’s food system.
Be sure to invite your appetite along for the walk. You’ll see the following food vendors within a stone’s throw of each other.
Be sure to check out the performers, folk artists, exhibits, circus acts, a free sing-a-long film screening of Selena, and all the other activities spread out across the area, too.
Tucson Meet Yourself will take up four city blocks by the Jacomé Plaza in front of the Joel D. Valdez Main Library. For more information about the location, hours, and entertainment schedule, visit tucsonmeetyourself.org or keep up with the event on Facebook.
