Marana in August 2019

Thursday, August 1, 2019 - Saturday, August 31, 2019

Marana in the National Spotlight 

News like this doesn’t come along very often. Marana has two national distinctions that you need to know about if you’re planning to visit. While they could not be more different, each will have equally passionate fans. Are you sitting down?

First, after nearly 20 years of effort, the Santa Cruz Valley was designated a National Heritage Area. This is the newest National Heritage Area in the U.S. and only the second in Arizona. How can you experience the rich cultures that have thrived along the Santa Cruz River? Plan to stay for a while. There is a whole lot of culture to explore. See more below.
Second, the annual World Axe Throwing League (WATL) Championship tournament is happening at Splitting Timber in Marana, December 6 – 8, 2019, at the Tucson Premium Outlets at Marana Center. The worldwide phenomenon that is recreational axe throwing is going to make Marana its epicenter. If a bunch of people hurl axes at targets with infinitesimal precision and you aren’t there to cheer them on, will you have missed the chance of a lifetime? There’s only one way to find out. See more below.
