Garlic and Onion Festival
Enjoy the cooler Southern Arizona temperatures at this annual three-day harvest celebration at Agua Linda Farms, a privately owned ranch in the scenic Santa Cruz River Valley. You’ll enjoy live music, dancing, moonlit hayrides and fresh farm cooking centered around — you guessed it — garlic and onions. Fresh bulbs will be available for purchase.
Those wishing to make a weekend of it can book reservations at the nearby Green Valley Wyndham Conoa Ranch Golf Resort and Spa and receive a 30-percent discount for a three-night stay.

Lumberjack Charity Festival
Pack the car and head to Tucson’s newly-opened Lodge Sasquatch Kitchen to see the brawny woodsmen of the Timberworks Lumberjack Show — featured on ESPN’s Great Outdoor Games, ABC’s Wild World of Sports, and Discovery Channel’s “The Travelers” — perform feats of axe throwing, wood chopping, log rolling, hot- and cross-cut sawing, chainsaw carving and variety of other forestry skills.
