The center of Festival activity, including the TKMA Kitchen Store and food & craft vendors, is in El Presidio Park in downtown Tucson. All venues are easy walking distance from the Park. Performances take place on the following stages:

  • Plaza Stage at City Hall
  • Courtyard Stage at the Old Pima County Courthouse
  • Museum Stage at the Tucson Museum of Art
  • Old Town Artisans Stage
This year, we will again feature the Young Artists’ Stage in a special time slot on one of the regular stages. The festival will again include a Ballad Tree, and the Acoustic Showcase which was a great success in 2009, its inaugural year, will also return to the Museum of Art lobby. All venues are within easy walking distance from the corner of Church and Alameda.

 

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the all-volunteer
Tucson Kitchen Musicians' Association,
along with generous contributions from sponsors ,
the Tucson Folk Festival has been
FREE TO THE PUBLIC SINCE 1986.
