4th Annual The Tucson 23: Mexican Food Festival

The Tucson 23
Mexican Food Festival
Saturday, June 15, 2019
Father's Day Weekend
6:00 PM

The Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance partners with title sponsor Visit Tucson and the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa for the fourth year to present a Mexican food festival celebrating Visit Tucson's Best 23 Miles of Mexican food in America. The event will feature weekend stay-cation packages, food demos and education, live music and more.

Tucson is home to the most diverse Mexican food north of the border. The highest concentration of these restaurants is found within a 23-mile area that includes the City of South Tucson, downtown and lower midtown. At these terrific eateries, many of which are family-owned and decades old, the settings are casual, the ingredients are fresh and the experience is unforgettable.

The fourth annual event on Father's Day Weekend in 2019 continues to establish the event as a Tucson favorite signature event celebrating some of the best Mexican food in the region.

Tickets are $65. Tickets include libation, and menu samplings from over 30 local wineries, breweries and local Mexican restaurants.

Limited tickets for youths (ages 6-17) will be available at the door for $10/each when attending with an adult who has pre-purchased a Tucson 23 ticket. Children 5 and younger are free.
