Event Navigation

Mission Garden is a beautiful restoration of the four-acre, 18th century garden associated with the Mission San Agustin in Tucson. The garden has revived a lost tradition: the San Ysidro Festival. This festival in mid-May celebrates the Sonoran Desert wheat harvest on the day of St. Isidor, patron saint of farmers. Come see heirloom White Sonora Wheat harvested, threshed, winnowed and milled with traditional implements! Sample pozole de trigo, the traditional dish for this event. There will also be a traditional procession, blessings of the garden, Mariachi Milagro, and traditional dances by the Basket Dancers from San Simon School and the Lion Dancers from the Tucson Chinese Cultural Center. This year the procession will include the dedication of two new garden plots, the Mexican and Chinese gardens. These new gardens celebrate both periods of time and cultural traditions important to Tucson.
