It’s that time of year again.

Tucson Meet Yourself is a 44-year-old festival that celebrates food, language, cultures and people. 

Some affectionately call it “Tucson Eat Yourself,” as more than 50 food vendors will be fixing up their specialties.

This year, new dining options are on the menu: Cuban cuisine, cassava cake from the coast of Nicaragua, and oxtails from CeeDee Jamaican Kitchen.

Check out performances by Phil Wiggins, master of acoustic harmonica; Julia Guitiérrez-Rivera, traditional Puerto Rican dancer; Lone Piñon, acoustic trio string band; and Sonora Lírico, lyrical opera quartet.  

When: Friday-Saturday, Oct. 13-14, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sunday, Oct. 15, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

Cost: FREE! Bring cash and card for food, drinks, t-shirts, and other merchandise.
