New Enchanted Neighborhood Tour


“Coming this Saturday Tucson’s historic RillitoBend Neighborhood Association is holding its first ever walking/biking neighborhood tour to raise money to support Valley of the Moon.

This event will take explorers on a journey through the century old neighborhood surrounding Valley of the Moon: RillitoBend. Tour goers will visit homes, gardens, a hidden labyrinth, horse properties, art exhibits and, of course, Valley of the Moon.

Way back when Valley of the Moon’s story started in 1923 the nearest paved road was miles away and there were only a handful of ranches in the area. Today the neighborhood is a delightful mix of historic and modern with a totally unique character. Community is one of Valley of the Moon’s core values and this neighborhood is a great example of community done right.

Food trucks, live music, child-led tours of Valley of the Moon and more await you! Come explore the most magical neighborhood in Tucson. Tickets are available online in advance as well as in person the day of the event.
