Armory Park is a 221 S. 6th Avenue, south of  Broadway Blvd in downtown Tucson. The Arizona State Building is at 400 W. Congress St.

Carolyn’s note: If you’re in Tucson and been on the streets of Broadway (last Wednesday, a day before the Teacher Strike/walk out), and at the corner of E. Congress/N. Granada on Thursday/Friday April 26 & 27 — you will know that thousands have been demonstrating, with lots of honking by supportive drivers.

This annual parade & festival doesn’t always coincide on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17) but in 2018 it does. May the luck of the Irish be with you.
