Tunes 'n' Food

There's more to Club Crawl™ than great music; there's also an abundance of fine dining

Club Crawl™ started back in 1994. At that time, the event took place mainly inside clubs off Fourth Avenue and Congress Street. A few years later, to keep up with the event's success, we added outdoor stages to accommodate the growing audience.

Now comes the next stage of growth: In an effort to make Club Crawl™ downtown Tucson's complete music festival, we are including a variety of new venues such as restaurants and coffee houses.

We hope this latest addition will encourage Club Crawlers to come downtown and experience the event earlier. Arriving early allows event-goers to easily find parking and walk to one of the nearby participating venues, where you can dine while enjoying live entertainment before you head to the outdoor stages and clubs along Congress Street and Fourth Avenue.

These Club Crawl™ venues, all within easy walking distance of the event enclosures, offer food and entertainment:
