The events listed above come from our research for the latest print issue of Tucson Happenings. We invest a great deal of time and resources to bring a comprehensive and accurate listing of events each month. The online calendar includes events that may have had to be omitted for space, or events that were added, changed or cancelled since the print magazine hit the streets. We work hard to gather this information and it is copyright protected.

To know if an event has changed, look for the following tags before the event title...

We do our best to provide a phone number for each event. Please be sure and CALL AHEAD to confirm that an event is still scheduled. We work throughout the month to contact as many places in our area with events, but it is possible that we could miss some. Also, sometimes things change after printing. Items are included in the calendar at the sole discretion of Tucson Happenings. Therefore, we are not responsible for errors or omissions.
