Three Cheers for Tucson Meet Yourself

Posted By on Tue, May 22, 2012 at 4:00 PM

At a press conference tomorrow, folks from Tucson Meet Yourself Folklife Festival (Oct. 12-14) will share some outstanding news — the nonprofit that celebrates everyone and everything in our Arizona-Sonora region received two National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Art Works Grants totaling $65,000.

U.S. Congressman Raul Grijalva will announce the grants tomorrow, 11:30 a.m. at the Pioneer Building Lobby & Tucson Pima Arts Council Conference Room, 100 N. Stone Ave. Grijalva will be joined by Pima County Supervisor Richard Elias, TPAC executive director Roberto Bedoya, and Tucson Meet Yourself program director and folklorist Maribel Alvarez. Ethnic food samples will be served from festival regulars Wat Buddhammetta Thai Temple, and other festival ethnic food vendors.
