Tumacacori

On Sunday, March 4, 2018, Tumacacori will hold its second annual “O’odham Tash” in celebration of the legacy and heritage of the O’odham people, who built this mission, worked the fields, and raised livestock. Between 10:00 and 1:00, visitors will be able to observe cultural demonstrations including basket weaving, painting, carving, pottery making, storytelling, singing, and tasting favorite traditional foods. At 11:00, participants can learn to play the ball game “toka.” Festivities will begin and end with singing and a blessing. Admission to the park is $5 per adult, free for federal pass holders and children under age 16.
