Tucson Summer Events

Whether you’re new to Tucson or just new to Stargate West, we want to keep you in the loop for Tucson summer events. After moving some place new it can be a bit daunting to make new friends and engage in the community, but it doesn’t have to be. Tucson is a friendly city and so is our little community at Stargate West. One of the best ways to get involved here in Tucson is to check out some of our local events. There is a wide range of events taking place over the course of the summer hosted by various organizations. If you are looking to getting involved in a specific sporting community or hobby group we suggest popping into a local store that supports your hobby or sport and ask for details on events or groups. Universities and colleges also usually have events starting up near the start of the fall semester so check out your college’s online calendar for more details! Here are a few events to put on your calendar this summer!
