35th Annual Fort Lowell Days

February 13, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The public is invited to visit the historic Fort Lowell neighborhood and relive Tucson’s bygone days at the 35th annual Fort Lowell Day celebration from noon – 4:00 PM. Events in Fort Lowell Park include high-speed cavalry drills, a regimental band concert, and hands-on activities such as adobe-brick making and games children would have played while living at the fort in the 1880s. The historic sites walking tour travels from Fort Lowell Park westward along Fort Lowell Road to the San Pedro Chapel through the historic neighborhood known as El Fuerte (The Fort). Site hosts will explain the historic significance of each site, and a descendant of the Bingham family will staff a Mormon History Exhibit in the old Commissary Building. At the San Pedro Chapel, you’ll find Mexican-flower making, a bookstore with local publications, and at 2:30 pm, a lecture by two medical historians who will present a demonstration of field surgical techniques. The afternoon is filled with music, food trucks and fun. Fort Lowell Park is located along Craycroft Road between Fort Lowell Rd. & Glenn St., & westward along Fort Lowell Rd., Tucson*
