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!
