The 4th Annual Tucson Carnaval will be held on Saturday, February 19, 2011, from 1pm – 8pm at Armory Park, 200 S. 6th Avenue.

Tucson Carnaval began in 2008 and is presented by Batucaxé in partnership with Tucson Parks and Recreation, Tucson Children’s Museum, Armory Park Neighborhood Association, the Downtown Tucson Partnership and Many Mouths One Stomach.
The mission of Tucson Carnaval is to create a participatory multi-cultural celebration inviting all members of the community to a parade and festival in celebration of humanity, the planet and new beginnings.
