Memory Tent: The Way We Were in 1974
This year’s Memory Tent celebrates the flower power of 1974, the year Tucson Meet Yourself was born. Listen to far-out albums, try your hand at the Rubik’s Cube, and hear stories from folks who remember the festival’s early years. We’ll be serving Hamburger Helper, Tab, and Pop Rocks (psyche!). Dream on, this is a chill space, dig it, complete with a record player, bean bags, and good vibes. Amidst the fun, we’ll also be reflecting on some of the harmful urban changes happening in Tucson in 1974 and how the festival worked to address them.
Special guests include Gertie Lopez, Ted Warmbrand, Joanna & Matthew Schmit (of Lajkonik Polish Folk Ensemble), Los Decendientes de Tucson, festival photographer Steven Meckler, and more!
