Tucson Meet Yourself 2020

Thursday, October 1, 2020 - Saturday, October 31, 2020

Tucson Meet Yourself 2020 Starts Today & Continues All Month Long!

If there’s anything we know about culture it’s that it is resilient and adaptive. We wouldn’t have fry bread or fried plantains in Tucson if that weren’t true.

We’re proud to continue the festival this year, “re-framed” for the times. Nearly 50 online performances, discussions, and demonstrations, plus a handful of safely distanced, in-person events. Here’s a brief run-down:

Cruise for Healing
Saturday, October 3, 2020, 5 pm
A 19-mile low rider car cruise around led by the Dukes Car Club

“Tucson Eat Yourself” pop-up food-to-go stands
Saturdays & Sundays for three weekends in October, 11am – 5 pm
Masks required, no dining areas available. We love you.

Lit Up: Traditional Artists on Public Walls
Fridays in October, Dusk – 10 pm
Video projections of traditional artists writ-large on Tucson walls.

TMY Virtual: Throughout October

TMY Folk Arts Marketplace Now OPEN!

The first ever TMY Online Folk Arts Marketplace features work from 9 spectacular folk artists. October 1-31. Find scarves and ties dyed in the Turkish Ebru (marbling tradition), Navajo beadwork, Mata Ortiz and Tohono O’odham pottery, colorful Mexican and Congolese textiles, Yaqui woodcarvings, and Hopi baskets and silver overly jewelry. 100% of revenue goes to the artists.

Your Support Keeps the Festival Free

Re-imagining a 3-day public festival hasn’t been easy. But as always, we’re bolstered by the creativity and adaptability of the artists we support every year — in food booths, at demonstration tables, and on stage. We learn from them how to pivot, re-direct, and re-invent.

Please consider donating to the festival. (Your donation goes to the festival producer, the Southwest Folklife Alliance.)
