  • Get ready for almost a whole week of mariachi fun.

La Frontera Arizona and the Tucson International Mariachi Conference are joining forces once again to bring the Old Pueblo the Tucson Mariachi Festival. Now in its 33rd consecutive year, the fest is the largest and longest running mariachi fest

The event will consist of four days of student workshops and live performances from Wednesday, April 8 through Saturday April 11 for thousands of attendees. On Thursday, April 9, a $10 student showcase concert will give more than 250 elementary through college aged performers from around the country the chance to showcase their musical and folklórico dance skills.

The whole festival will come together on Friday, April 10 for the Espectacular Concert, which will pay tribute to mariachi legend Nati Cano and feature his ensemble Los Camperos de Nati Cano starting at 7 p.m. Tickets for that event, which takes place at Casino del Sol, are available online through the casino's website for $20 to $40, depending on seating. Proceeds from the concert will go to benefit Children’s Services at La Frontera Center.

Then on Saturday, Aprill 11, the Tucson Mariachi Festival will cap it all off with a full day of music and dance called the Fiesta de Garibaldi. Tickets for the poolside mariachi party are just $10.

For more information on all of the events happening in conjunction with the Tucson Mariachi Festival and to purchase tickets to the Fiesta and Student Showcase, visit the Tucson Mariachi Festival website.
