Fiesta de Saguaro This Weekend

It's a busy weekend in Tucson. There's César Chávez Week with the big march on Saturday, the Fourth Avenue Street Fair, and the 2nd Annual Fiesta de Saguaro at Saguaro National Park.

Saguaro National Park will host its second annual Fiesta de Saguaro, on Saturday April 5, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The event will be held at the park’s Rincon Mountain Visitor Center, at 3693 South Old Spanish Trail. The Fiesta celebrates the rich Hispanic history and culture of park and local area, with a variety of activities, exhibits, lectures, demonstrations and performances. This family-oriented event is free to the public, and includes free entrance to Saguaro National Park’s Rincon Mountain (East) District.

Due to limited parking at the Rincon Mountain Visitor Center, the park will run continuous shuttle service from Sahuaro Baptist Church, located at 10361 East Old Spanish Trail (at Houghton Road). The shuttle service will run from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm. The only parking available at the visitor center on April 5 will be for those visitors with special needs.

Food, mariachis, folklorico, piñatas, marionetas - what more could you need?

(besides sunscreen)
