Viva La Local Food Festival 


Now becoming a staple in the community, the Viva La Local Food Festival returns for its third installment on Saturday, April 18 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The fest boasts a sundry of Tucson's best food destinations all in one place, Rillito Park, 4520 N. 1st Ave., along with the established Heirloom's Farmers Market. Each restaurant has a booth and will be dishing up some of their favorites for $5 a piece. The portion sizes are reasonable, but I recommend getting a fresh juice or alcoholic drink, also $5, to pair. Be sure to save some cash for the farmers market, as well—you'll be sad if you don't! Live local musicians will keep the atmosphere upbeat, as will the many people who turnout for the event. Admission is $6, with kids 12 and under free. All food, wine and beer is $5. Check out the event's Facebook page for more info.
