Kids jump on empty soda bottles to launch paper rockets they made at Science City at the Tucson Festival of Books at the University of Arizona on March 2, 2019.

Normally, we love telling you about all the places you can gather in Tucson with your neighbors. 

But, like you, we're navigating this ever-changing situation the best we know how. 

And, right now, that means keeping you updated about previously scheduled community events that have been canceled or postponed due to COVID-19.

Yesterday, Tucson Mayor Regina Romero recommended that events with an expected attendance of at least 50 individuals be postponed, adding that the city will not be issuing special event permits for events with an expected attendance of 50-plus people. 

Since the cancellation of the Tucson Festival of Books earlier this week, other beloved Tucson traditions have followed suit. We expect to see more cancellations in the days to come. 

As always, our hope is to be as helpful to you as possible. We will continue to update this list of canceled or postponed events as needed. You can email us at if you have an event that has been canceled. 

The Arizona Daily Star is also tracking local news and updating events at and their coverage of coronavirus is free.

Stay healthy out there, friends! We're in this together. Here's the list of canceled or postponed events with relevant notes:
