Tucson Rodeo Parade Committee, Inc.
Arts & History
The Parade Committee was formed to insure planning, organization, supervision and conduct for the annual Parade of “La Fiesta de Los Vaqueros” in cooperation with the City of Tucson.
Operating what is now the “Largest Non-Motorized Parade in the World” requires maintaining the spirit of the original 1925 Parade organizers while working closely with the Tucson community through the dedicated efforts of the committee members. The Parade Committee is made up of 36 volunteer members led by a Chairman. It is organized around 18 sub-committee assignments, each with two members. Sub-committees are organized to deal with every facet of the Parade, and the Parade Museum.
Museum: Our Museum staff relies heavily on assistance from our volunteer docents. We graciously acknowledge their support — the backbone of our efforts. Anyone with an interest in volunteering is welcome. And your help is always welcome.
Parade: No Parade of this magnitude can be a success without the efforts of our many volunteers. There is a wide gamut of opportunities for those with an interest in becoming PARADE volunteers.
- Beginning each fall there are regularly scheduled work sessions. At these sessions Parade Committee Members, Associates and volunteers prepare for the February Parade. Others concentrate on the Museum, preparing it for its opening in early January.
- Work sessions are Sundays beginning at 8:00 A.M. and lasting through Noon, with lunch and refreshments provided. All work sessions are in the Tucson Rodeo Grounds, 6th Avenue and Irvington Road. A work session schedule is available to all interested individuals.
- Parade Day requires a huge effort on everyone’s part to provide a successful event. Volunteers can assist as Ticket Sellers, Course Marshals, etc.
