Free Family Festival in the Park – Saturday, November 16th

Tucson Parks and Recreation Department presents the 8th Annual Family Festival in the Park. This free annual community-wide event is about having family fun and a terrific opportunity for Tucson Parks and Recreation to showcase programs and activities offered to the community. This year we have partnered with the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, so please bring a donation of canned goods to the festival to help support their cause. The Lions Club will also be there accepting donations of your old prescription eye glasses.

The event is expected to attract more than 9,000 Tucsonans. Family activities include stage entertainment, carnival games, inflatable, climbing wall, crafts, golf clinic, tennis games, a tour of the rose garden and demonstrations of pottery and drawing offered by the leisure class unit. There will be a display of artwork from Leisure Classes in the Registration building located just northeast of the Zoo. The Reid Park Zoo will have free admission as well as the Edith Ball Adaptive Recreation Center hosting an afternoon of free swimming from noon to 4 p.m. Tucson City Golf will offer a free 10-minute golf instruction at the Randolph Driving Range adjacent to the park on Alvernon Way from 10 a.m. to noon. Entertainment will be presented throughout the day and a variety of foods will be available for purchase through local vendors.
