May the Fourth 2024: Star Wars-themed Foodie Events in Tucson

April 28, 2024
By Matt Sterner

Star Wars Day (AKA May the Fourth) is the annual celebration of George Lucas’ Star Wars films, but you won’t need to travel to the dimly-lit Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine to get a good drink. This year, a few local restaurants and bars are teaming up on the holiday to bring you Star Wars deals and space-themed parties on Saturday, May 4.

So, whether you’re an Ewok, a Wookiee, or just really, really hungry, you can expect to find themed environments, trivia, prizes, drink specials, and more.
