Festivals have been a tradition in Tubac since 1959. Southern Arizona’s longest running art festival, the Tubac Festival of the Arts has a 61 year tradition that draws tens of thousands of visitors each season. Each February, approximately 200 visiting artists from around the country and as far away as Canada exhibit their works along the village streets, mixed in with the more than 100 shops, fine art galleries and working artist studios.
The Fine Arts & Crafts Festival is held each fall in the village. It is similar to the Tubac Festival of the Arts and is held just in time for holiday shopping. In 2020, the festival will be held to be held on November 20, 21, and 22 from 10 am to 5 pm.
