Posted By on Thu, Sep 2, 2010 at 2:33 PM

Here's a recent video interview with Big Jim Griffith, one of the founders of the Tucson Meet Yourself Festival. The 2010 festival takes place Oct. 8, 9 and 10. See our interview with folklorist Maribel Alvarez here. The festival will continue to have multi-cultural offerings of music, dance, food and traditional crafts, but this year there will be art installations and new venues. Check out the event locations:

1. Meet Your Neighbors in El Presidio Park 160 W. Alameda (just outside City Hall and the Pima County Courthouse)
2. Get Hands On presented by Wells Fargo in Jacomé Library Plaza 101 N. Stone Avenue (outside the Main Library)
3. Meet Your Soul in La Placita Village 110 S. Church (a collection of colorful buildings at Church & Broadway)
4. Traditions of Home & Games People Play in Tucson Convention Center Plaza 260 S. Church (open plaza areas between Leo Rich Theater & TCC Music Hall)
