Tucson Calendar of Events for June 2010

Despite the heat, June is one of Tucson most active months for family events. Most Tucson events in June are usually indoors or at night since the daytime temperatures hover in the 100's. The free Summerhaven's annual Music on the Mountain will be held Sundays through September 5th on top of Mt. Lemmon during the day time since temperatures are usually 15-20 degrees cooler.

Evening outdoor concert series from La Encantada and Plaza Palomino Concerts are again held during the weekends during June. United Blood Services and Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Baileys partner for a blood drive while the circus visits this month. These are the day to day events in Tucson in June 2010:
