A Leisurely Urban Saturday

Lots of events happening on Saturday within walking/cycling distance of each other. Stop along the way to kick back at a sidewalk cafe with a cup of coffee and a snack and you'll be sure to enjoy a beautiful fall day downtown.

27th Annual Holiday Craft Market

10am-5pm, November 22-23
Tucson Museum of Art Courtyard and Main Lobby
140 N. Main

More than 120 artists will be offering their unique work in jewelry, ceramics, watercolors, metal work and much more. It's a great opportunity to get a jump on your holiday shopping. While you're there, venture into the main gallery to view Maynard Dixon's majestic Arizona landscape paintings.

Downtown Saturday Night Congress St. Urban Block Party
6-9pm, Saturday, November 22
Congress Street, between 5th Ave. and 6th Ave.

This has to be one of my favorite regularly-occurring events in Tucson. Round up a group and head Downtown this Saturday evening for an urban atmosphere of free arts and entertainment. Take a stroll down Congress Street and experience live music, DJs, street performers, vendors, multi-media visuals, gallery openings and more! Complete details and entertainment schedule available on the Downtown Tucson website.
