Tucson Parade History
The longest non-motorized parade in the nation!

Our Story

The Tucson Rodeo Parade originated in February 1925. At that time, it preceded the Tucson Rodeo and was a one-day event, both of which were conceived with the thought that they could benefit Tucson’s economy by attracting tourists. The plan worked! Now, 100 years later, the parade is still rollin' strong!
