This festival is a blast! The drive is fabulous—winding through the rolling grasslands of Southern Arizona to beautiful Patagonia Lake. The Mariachi Festival is the icing on the cake—a colorful lineup of Arizona’s best Mariachi bands and dancers, performing on a big stage. There’s tons of authentic Mexican food, plus hot dogs, hamburgers, kettle corn and so much more. New to the festival is a tasting tent, where you can sample a variety of libations by local wineries, breweries, and distilleries—a true taste of Southern Arizona. Bring your own lawn chair and settle into our nest to enjoy the show, or grab this opportunity to explore Patagonia Lake’s amazing trails and wildlife. It’s up to you—just don’t miss out on the fun!
