The Tucson Folk Festival returns to Downtown Tucson for our 39th annual festival. The 2024 festival will feature six stages of live music and over 125 acts in the streets surrounding Jacome Plaza! Vendors/Exhibitors will be prominently stationed in the Elise Grecco Marketplace, named in the memory of one our longtime contributors, Elise Grecco, along Church Avenue from Pennington Street to Alameda Street. We are always looking for new ways to increase vendor/exhibitor business and exposure, and this will be a central thoroughfare in the middle of the festival this year. We are committed to making your experience at our festival fun AND profitable at the same time!
We are excited to be partnering with the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance (SAACA) this year who will be coordinating onsite production, staffing, and vendor management for the festival. All questions can be directed to SAACA. Please submit a completed Vendor/Exhibitor Application online at the links above, along with your required documentation and payment. Food vendors and exhibitors will be invoiced separately after acceptance into the festival.
Throughout this festival season, you can visit our website and sign up for our email list to stay up to date on festival news. Feel free to contact SAACA with any questions. Your support truly enhances the Tucson Folk Festival experience for all!

ABOUT ELISE GRECCO
The Tucson Folk Festival vendor marketplace, featuring Arts & Crafts booths, Food Vendors, and Exhibitors, is named in the memory of one of the Festivals long time contributors, Elise Grecco.
Elise Grecco, the well-loved, gregarious and velvet-voiced musician, was an enthusiastic advocate for music and a hard-working matriarch of the Folk Festival. Over the years, she became an increasingly integral part of the jigsaw puzzle that’s called the Tucson Folk Festival. As the Festival grew, Elise continued to take on bigger roles during throughout the year, serving as TKMA Board President 1996 and 1997.
Elise will be remembered handing out her purse-full-of Folk Fest flyers at the 4th Avenue Street Fairs and roaming the lobby of Hotel Congress or the Rialto during intermissions, always spreading the word about the Tucson Folk Festival. If it was needed, she’d schlep cases of water and soda from Costco, pick-up T-shirts, CDs, or transport musicians who needed a ride. She was often the one who would bush-whack through the red tape required to get permits to conduct the Festival each year; it takes a village of bureaucrats to put on the Tucson Folk Festival. After decades of work, behind-the-scenes organizing, on the ground directing, and tying up loose ends afterward, her legacy is the Tucson Folk Festival.
