Arizona Humanities Festival

Free and Open to the Public

The Arizona Humanities Festival is a vibrant celebration of the
humanities that engages the imagination, explores ideas, and excites
people to learn more about the world we share.

This year's theme, American Jukebox, will explore the evolution of
American music. Over the course of our nation's history, the musical
traditions from our many cultures have combined to create new
harmonies, from Native American to ragtime to country and so much
more. This year's festival provides a fascinating look at American styles
of music and the unique part Arizona has played in crafting those
melodies.

Pack a picnic, spread a blanket, and enjoy the music of our shared histories!
