Is your summer filled with exciting and fun, not to mention free, events and activities for your entire family? If you shop at Bookmans, your answer is YES! Every summer we roll out the events carpet with creative and original events for you. It is also our favorite time to work with our community partners. This week at Bookmans Entertainment Exchanges in Tucson, we hosted the Civic Orchestra of Tucson and their popular Instrument Petting Zoo.

Summer Fun with Civic Orchestra of Tucson

COT has been in Tucson for 40 years and has consistently brought music and culture to our community. Established in 1975, COT is a volunteer organization with 60 plus members strong. Its free concerts include the talents of well known local and national musicians as well as partnership performances with local youth dancers from Dancing in the Streets Arizona. COT’s Instrument Petting Zoo reflects the group’s commitment to youth education and enrichment through music.

Local musicians are encouraged to join the fun, COT is always looking for additional talent seeking the opportunity to play in a full symphony orchestra. If that’s you, ring them up or shoot off a message.

COT is one of many local businesses and entertainers who partner with Bookmans this summer. Look for events each week at your local Bookmans. It’s a busy summer and everyone is looking for fun. Think local, live local. This summer you may find a new friend and support local rescues at one of our weekly animal welfare events. Learn a new skill at our crafting events taught by local artists or hone your gaming talents at our Pokemon or gaming events. You will find something new to explore whether it’s through chess, yoga, music or our Summer Kids Event series. Come in to enjoy our cool air conditioning and free wifi. Whatever you’re looking to learn, let Bookmans be the first place you go.
