TMY Virtual

Curated ONLINE conversations and demonstrations celebrating and exploring folk arts, foodways, and performing arts. 

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays in October

We’re taking it to the screen, of course, for safe and intimate conversations and demonstrations. Listen to folk artists, musicians, dancers, food producers, cooks, and others on how they keep culture and heritage alive in Tucson.

All events are broadcast on TMY’s Facebook page and TMY’s YouTube Channel. Visit the TMY calendar for details on each event below. Meet all of the 2020 Festival Artists here.

All TMY virtual events will be interpreted by ASL interpreters or closed captioning and will be available in both Spanish and English.
