One of the oldest FREE Americana/Folk Music Festivals in the Country!
A production of the Tucson Kitchen Musicians Association
NEW DATE FOR
2019 TUCSON FOLK FESTIVAL
APRIL 6-7, 2019
The Festival has always been the first weekend in May! Why???
After gathering input from the Tucson community through our 2018 post-festival surveys, conducting a Brainstorming Session with interested TKMA staff and community members, and reviewing all 2019 events occuring in the Tucson community, the TKMA Board believed April 6-7, 2019 to be the best option
Better Volunteer Support: College Students finals occur first weekend in May & “Snowbirds” have already left by first weekend in May
Better Weather (usually): It was just plain TOO HOT this last festival and a handful of volunteers; became overheated – Performers were too hot! What the heck . . . we ALL were too hot!
2019 TUCSON FOLK FESTIVAL will remain in
HISTORIC DOWNTOWN TUCSON!
The festival footprint will be pretty much the same, only the main festival grounds
will take place in Jacome Plaza and surrounding areas.
(El Presidio Park is no longer available for festivals).
The festival layout is being fine-tuned by our 2019 TFF Planning Committee, headed by Greg Aiken. We will have five stages: Jacome Plaza (2 stages), La Cocina, Presidio Museum and Church Avenue Stage (between Alameda & Washington).
Watch for opportunities to be a part of our events and activities all through this new festival season! You might not always be able to make it to a monthly meeting, or commit to volunteering regularly. However, you can show small actions of support by becoming a TKMA member or Festival Sponsor and/or attend our events throughout the year, including our main event . . . the Annual Tucson Folk Festival!
Isn’t there just the greatest energy associated with new possibilities?
WHAT/WHO IS TKMA?
The Tucson Kitchen Musicians Association (TKMA) began as a group of friends gathering regularly on Friday nights for potlucks and jammin’ in the kitchen. TKMA has grown into an all-volunteer operated 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1986; Tax ID #86-0514808. Our mission is to further public awareness and interest in acoustic music and other folk arts by promoting and producing the annual Tucson Folk Festival; one of the oldest FREE folk music festivals in the country!
