JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort and Spa is hosting the Tucson 23 Mexican Food Festival, celebrating the “Best 23 Miles of Mexican Food in America,” once again from 6 – 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 15.

If it’s your first time hearing of the festival, it includes several restaurants that have been around for years, and can be found within a 23-mile area that includes the city of South Tucson, downtown, and midtown.

Here’s a thought, too. It could be the perfect gift for Dad, being that it takes place the weekend of Father’s Day. It’s comparable to Super Bowl Sunday, but on a Saturday and full of great food, demonstrations, live music, and more.
