Tucson Meet Yourself is an alcohol-free event.


Dogs are allowed at Tucson Meet Yourself. We ask dog owners to exercise common sense and courtesy. The festival can get busy and crowded so do consider your dog’s comfort—as well as that of others—before bringing it.


Tucson Police Department officers are dispatched throughout the Festival area. Approach Festival volunteers or staff (identifiable by their TMY t-shirts) for assistance. In case of an emergency call 911.

Free Speech

The Festival takes place in public plazas and streets, free of charge and without enclosures. Therefore anyone can exercise their First Amendment right to free speech. By City of Tucson ordinance, it is required that petitioners or free speech individuals or groups move about the area instead of remaining stationary. These petitioners are not endorsed by Tucson Meet Yourself or its parent organization, Southwest Folklife Alliance.

Proselytizing, haggling, soliciting business, or engaging in disrespectful noise-making activity that disrupts neighbors, stages, or Festival audiences will not be tolerated. If you observe any such disruptions, please approach Festival volunteers or staff for assistance.


Arizona law states that any person 21 years or older, who is not a prohibited possessor, may carry a weapon openly or concealed without the need for a license. Concerns about safety or threatening behaviors should be reported to law enforcement personnel, who are on festival grounds throughout the weekend. For emergencies, call 911.
