The City of Yuma and the Caballeros de Yuma invite you to participate as a vendor at the 2020 Tunes & Tacos Festival on April 10-11, 2020 at the Yuma Civic Center & Desert Sun Stadium.  The Tunes & Tacos Festival is Yuma’s largest two day event drawing more than 15,000 people. Tunes & Tacos Festival is now a TWO DAY vending event. Plan accordingly. In 2016, the Tunes & Tacos Festival was ranked first in its category for Outstanding Program/Community Special Event for populations of 25,000 to 100,000 at the 2016 Arizona Parks and Recreation Association (APRA) awards. It was also featured twice in Arizona Highways Magazine, named #12 in Arizona’s top 25 festivals and listed #3 in “22 things people need to know about Yuma before moving there”! This is an excellent event to showcase your brand and products to your target market – local families.
