To Believe

by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert

I am convinced that today I heard an angel sing.  She had me at the first note, this angelic being whose heaven sent voice rang out and touched thousands of leaders and dignitaries from around the world with a message too powerful to ignore.   One that calls on us all "to believe in a day when hunger and war will pass away". 

On February 2, eleven year old Jackie Evanco performed at the National Prayer Breakfast, at which President Obama was the keynote speaker.   With a voice as extraordinary as hers, it is easy to believe that all things are possible...including the day when hunger and war will no longer exist.

Tubac Festival of The Arts

In Tubac you can feel the excitement building in the air as vendors complete their last minute preparations for the February 8th opening of the 53rd Annual Tubac Center of the Arts.  Dating back to 1959 this festival, which is sponsored by the Tubac Chamber of Commerce every February, has the distinction of being the longest running event of its kind in the Southwest.

From February 8th through the 12th, the town with the motto of "Where Art and History Meet", will showcase the work of hundreds of visiting artists and musicians from around the country and Canada.  While the show is juried for quality, it is far from pretentious.  A day at this festival means you'll be treated to serious paintings that share the street with whimsical sculptures, creative crafts and New Age music.  Not to mention a food court packed with delicious treats that are sure to appeal to every taste and budget.

Click here for frequently asked questions about the festival.   Don't miss an area favorite, make plans now to attend one or all of the days:  February 8-12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.    Admission is free and parking is $6 per car with proceeds benefitting local non-profits.  The Tubac Chamber of Commerce can be reached at 520-398-2704.
