The event, which is free, will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the Pima County Fairgrounds, 11300 S. Houghton Road.

The theme this year is “Vail, Where Success is Crystal Clear.”

Activities will include Academic Jeopardy and Math Bowl competitions, a fun run and dozens of classroom, educational, art and science displays, according to a press release from the school district.

There also will be live performances and the opportunity to learn about local organizations.
