See Us at the Rialto Theatre Gallery Project!
The Tucson Folk Festival presents a collection of some of their favorite festival posters from its start in 1986 through their 36th Annual Festival that took place in 2021.
This is a free exhibit featuring a collection of posters from Tucson Folk Festival history as well as incredible concert photography at the Rialto. Attendees can also listen to free live music on the Rialto patio several nights of the exhibit (Petie Ronstadt on 6/18, Tom Walbank on 6/25), as well as audio from 2021 Tucson Folk Festival performances inside the gallery.
The Gallery Project sponsored by Lerner & Rowe Injury Attorneystakes place every Friday and Saturday night from 6-9 PM, and is FREE to the public. The event showcases photos and posters from past live events, with images curated from the photography of C. Elliott and Mark A. Martinez, and event poster designs from Ryan Trayte.
Reservations are encouraged and given priority, but walk-ins are welcome! Make your reservation here. Safety protocols will be strictly enforced, including temperature checks at the door, social distancing measures, and masks required while inside the theatre (no cocktails will be permitted indoors).
