In the Field

The Second Annual Arizona Humanities Festival

October 12, 2012 | By Federal/State Partnership Staff

The second annual Arizona Humanities Festival, sponsored by the Arizona Humanities Council, is coming to Downtown Phoenix November 3, 2012. The Arizona Humanities Festival is a vibrant celebration of the humanities that engages the imagination, explores ideas, and excites people to learn more about the world we share. This year's theme, American Jukebox, will explore the evolution of American music and the unique part Arizona has played in crafting those melodies.

Pack a picnic, spread a blanket, and enjoy the music of our shared histories!

This event is free and open to the public. No advance registration required.
