What to Expect at 2nd Saturdays in Downtown Tucson

On the second Saturday of each month, downtown Tucson is the spot to be for live entertainment, dining and drink specials, and family-friendly fun. 2nd Saturdays takes place all year long, and it is the perfect opportunity to explore local businesses along Congress Street while enjoying great entertainment along the way. Plus, the event is completely free to attend! 

Live Music

Congress Street is partially shut down to traffic for 2nd Saturdays to make room for several live entertainment stages where you can hear music from a variety of performers. There are multiple acts on different stages, so you can easily find something that fits your musical tastes. Street performers will also be stationed throughout the event for even more entertainment as you explore the vibrant local businesses of downtown’s busiest street.  

Dining Specials

Every 2nd Saturday, many downtown restaurants offer happy hour specials on food and drink so that you can get plenty of refreshments before or after the event itself. Maynard’s Kitchen, Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails, Borderlands Brewing, Penca, and Charro Steak are just some of the spots you might check out for dining and drink specials, including late-night reverse happy hours. You can also find great deals at downtown’s retail shops just for the 2nd Saturday crowd. 

Local Vendors 

Along with the many permanent businesses downtown, you can find a variety of vendors selling local crafts, food, and much more. New vendors are always joining in on the fun, so there is always something new to discover at this nighttime street festival.
