Tucson’s 244th Birthday



Celebrate Tucson’s birthday at the Presidio Museum.  Happy hour and taco bar at La Cocina. Live, local performances at La Cocina. Ongoing free docent tours of the Presidio Museum. Free tours of the Presidio District with Ken Scoville. Free birthday cake. 

Tucson’s official birthday celebration kicks off with a presentation by the mayor and other city officials followed by a party with birthday cake and cultural entertainment.

The Presidio San Agustín del Tucson Museum is located on the northeast corner of the original Presidio at 196 N. Court Ave. The Presidio Museum is a reconstruction of the original Tucson Presidio built in 1775.  Docent tours give visitors a glimpse of what life in the Presidio was like for soldiers and other residents.  Additional highlights include an original 150-year-old Sonoran row house and a 2,000-year-old prehistoric pit house.  Living History Days are held on the second Saturday of the month from October through April to allow visitors to experience firsthand Tucson’s history. The Presidio Museum is managed by the Tucson Presidio Trust for Historic Preservation, a not-for-profit entity whose mission is to guide and aid in the interpretation of history at the Presidio San Agustín through research, education and living history experiences.
