  • Prepare to get a little lawless at Dillinger Days.

January is rushing by already so before you know it, it'll be time for Dillinger Days. On Jan. 23 and 24, the outlaw celebration will commence at Hotel Congress, bringing reenactments, live music, and a heavy dose of history to downtown Tucson.

However, the event's kick-off function will be a 1930s-inspired speakeasy party at the hotel. With themed bites from Cup Cafe and a steady flow of Whiskey del Bac and special Borderlands brews, as well as a cigar lounge, the event will attempt to transport guests to Dillinger's time. In terms of entertainment, a photo booth, vintage car and magic shows, and live music courtesy of Kings of Pleasure and Desert Melodies will keep attendees busy between the booze. 

The speakeasy will start at 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 23. Tickets can be bought online in advance for $25 with the proceeds going to the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation. 

Of course, that's not all that's in store for Dillinger Days this year. The following day at Hotel Congress will be jam-packed with historical skits, tours, and lectures as well as art, live music, and a beer garden featuring local beer. All of that and more will take place on Saturday, Jan. 24 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and it is free to attend.

Here's some footage from past Dillinger Days festivities in case you're a first-timer:
