2020 Beads, Blues and Beer Festival


Date: Saturday, February 8
Time: 12-8 PM
Location: Beads of Courage HQ, 3230 N. Dodge Blvd, Tucson

The Beads, Blues and Beer Festival is a free family-friendly event that brings together the Tucson community for a day of live music, bead-stringing fun, food and inspiration. Hosted at The Metal Arts Village during the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, the Festival provides our Tucson community with a fun day while celebrating the art of the bead and all that our organization has accomplished in helping children coping with serious illness.

You will enjoy an open air festival atmosphere with exhibitors featuring unique items for sale, wearable art for purchase, Beads of Courage signature bead-stringing activities, and live music from Tucson’s talent. The Festival evening will include the Beads of Courage Annual Hall of Fame Bead Artist Induction Ceremony and an inspiring presentation on our mission.
