Organizers are gearing up for the 2018 Tucson Rodeo Parade.
A recent announcement revealed the Tucson Conquistadores will serve as the the grand marshals of this year’s parade. The organization is recognized for their work in supporting youth athletic programs through professional golf. Known as the “world’s longest non-motorized parade,” the event is slated to kick off at 9am on Thursday, Feb. 22.
The parade route begins on Ajo Highway, about a half-mile west of Park Avenue. Parade participants will roll down Ajo, turn right on Park Avenue, make a left on Irvington Road and take a right on Sixth Avenue before ending at the Tucson Rodeo Grounds. For more information on the route, please visit the official website here.
The judges and reviewing stands will be located on the north side of Irvington, close to Sixth Avenue. Grandstand seating is available on Irvington Road, but tickets will be required for this area. You can purchase these tickets at booths near the grandstands or in advance at The Rodeo Parade Office (4823 S. 6th Ave Tucson) Mondays-Fridays from 8 am to 5 pm.
