Experience

Tucson FEASTS

Highlighting Tucson’s rich agricultural heritage, thriving food traditions, and culinary distinctiveness, Tucson FEASTS brings together more than 30 local restaurants and food vendors for a one-of-a-kind culinary experience curated by The Gastronomic Union of Tucson (GUT).
Following Tucson’s designation by UNESCO as a World City of Gastronomy, the chefs of GUT came together to foster a culinary community of creativity, professional development, and community engagement.
At DUSK, the entire GUT collective will be crafting a custom menu of food options for every taste and every budget.
As we get closer to the festival, we will update the menu options and highlight the chefs.

Tucson ARTS

With an experience carefully crafted by the team at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson, DUSK Music Festival attendees will be awed and inspired by new ways of thinking through a variety of larger-than-life sculptures, digital art, video projection and lighting displays throughout downtown Tucson and the Armory Park festival grounds.
In partnership with the University of Arizona’s School of Art, 3D & Extended Media program, Tucson ARTS will be commissioning student and faculty members and other area artists to create sculptures, digital artwork and lighting exhibits for the festival grounds that explore the intersection of art and music.
Check back here later to see more about our 2018 artists!

Tucson PLAYS

Video and backyard games are an important part of the music festival experience. Whether you need a break from the action on our two stages or want to settle the score with “you-know-who,” the Tucson PLAYS area is the place to go.
Filled with life-sized lawn games and outdoor classics like corn hole, ping pong and ladderball, Tucson PLAYS will be a paradise for gamers of all ages.

Tucson SHOPS

Tucson SHOPS will offer a variety of goods from local, regional and national artisans, makers and retailers. From accessories and hats, to boots, artwork and apparel, attendees can browse a selection of quality items from a wide variety of vendors.
Shop-keeps will have their stores open all day and accept cash, credit and debit payments. There will be plenty of ATMs available at Armory Park.
