The Stone Avenue Block Party, a joint project of the Jewish History Museum and the Consul of Mexico in Tucson, will take place on Saturday, Oct. 7 beginning at 7 p.m. on Stone Avenue between 16th and 17th Streets.

Now in its third year, the event remains “a critical piece of a broader effort to realize a cultural corridor on the southern edge of downtown Tucson,” says Bryan Davis, JHM executive director.  Beyond the feel-good atmosphere, he says, the block party is intended to exemplify the strong and enduring connections between the Jewish and Mexican communities in Southern Arizona. 

Klezmerson, a five-piece klezmer band based in Mexico City, will headline the event. A food truck roundup and beer garden featuring locally crafted beers will line the streets. Attendees will be able to visit the Jewish History Museum at no charge.
