It’s a Winner Wednesday giveaway!

It’s finally here! Tucson Meet Yourself or as most Tucsonians lovingly call it, Tucson FEED Yourself. A Folk-Life Festival full of traditional and authentic food and performance, Tucson Meet Yourself celebrates the communities that make up the Arizona-Sanora Region. This is a free event where the only things you need to attend are wide eyes and an empty stomach. Brought to life by UA folklorist and anthropologist Dr. James “Big Jim” Griffith in 1974, TMY has now grown into the beloved community event we know today. Tucson natives and those just visiting arrive in droves to eat their way through the rich cultural history of our beautiful Sonoran home.

One of the highlights of Tucson Meet Yourself is undoubtedly the food. Traditional authentic meals from all over the world will be available for all courageous foodies. Food from Vietnam, Bosnia, Costa Rica, the Philippines and more! Produced by the Southwest Folk Life Alliance in partnership with University of Arizona’s Southwest Center and College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, “Tucson Meet Yourself is an annual celebration of the living traditional arts of Southern Arizona’s and Northern Mexico’s diverse ethnic and folk communities. Each October, this three-day event features hundreds of artisans, home cooks, dancers, musicians and special exhibits that celebrate and honor beauty in all its diverse, informal, and everyday forms.” TMY is a staple in the Tucson community and an event we look forward to all year long.
