Busy 2nd Saturday Downtown with Tucson Meet Yourself too

Busy day on October 11, with the usual 2nd Saturday Downtown activities along Congress Street, from the Hotel Congress west to the Fox Tucson Theatre. This monthly Tucson urban street fest’s entertainment schedule is here: www.2ndsaturdaysdowntown.com.

It’s also the 2nd day of the 3 day folklife festival Tucson Meet Yourself (TMY) in its 41st year, which is mostly at Jacome Plaza (outside the Joel D. Valdez Main library, between Alameda and Pennington, along Stone Avenue), and El Presidio Park. Check out the three entertainment stages at TMY, as well as the Folk Art demonstrations in the Pima County Courthouse courtyard.  Their entertainment here: http://www.tucsonmeetyourself.org/2014-performance-schedule/. Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday.

And if that isn’t enough to do, don’t forget Aidswalk Tucson 2014 on Sunday October 12 at 7 a.m. at the same Jacome Plaza area, along Church Avenue.  Aidswalk ends before Tucson Meet Yourself starts up on Sunday at 11 a.m.(and continues to 6 p.m .)Aidswalk2014

We usually attend all of these events, so it will be a fun-filled, but exhausting weekend in October.  Thankfully the weather has usually cooled down a bit for the Autumn season.

  1. Thousands of people on Congress St. for the usual 2nd Saturday downtown activities, food trucks, entertainment at the Hotel Congress, Rialto Theater, Fox Theater, etc. Listened to the 7 Pipers Band and noticed lots of new craft vendors.
