Remember, if you're saying to yourself “I want to go to that, and that, and that," a TENWEST All-Access pass gets you into EVERYTHING!!!

On Wednesday, Nov 8th, TENWEST is proud to host one of Mexico's most exciting and up and coming songwriters, Silvana Estrada, alongside a Tucson-favorite and international party starters, Jenny and the Mexicats. If you haven't heard these two acts, start getting familiar now and DO NOT miss your chance to see them co-headline a very special evening at the historic Hotel Congress. This event is included as a part of the TENWEST All-Access Pass or can be purchased individually HERE.

Do you love supporting local vendors and discovering new products, businesses, and food? Our TENWEST Street Fest is a place to discover unique entrepreneurs in Tucson and Southern Arizona. With over 100 diverse local vendors at our first annual Street Fest, there was something new around every turn and we can't wait to do it all again this year on Saturday, November 4th. You'll stroll through the market at 6th and 7th and enjoy Tucson's finest performers and vendors at this all-day event on 6th Ave and 7th St near EXO Coffee, Corbett's, Tap & Bottle, Royal Room, and many other (awesome) participating local businesses. Mark your calendar NOW!!!

Want to participate as a vendor? We are taking applications NOW until Sep 18th.

A true visionary, Joe O'Connell started Creative Machines in his garage in 1995 and since has grown the company into an internationally renowned, hyper-productive art factory!

One of Tucson's most unique local businesses, Joe and the team design large-scale art installations and ship them all over the world from their 80,000 sq ft fun factory right in your backyard on the Southeast side of Tucson.

It's hard to fully grasp the magnitude of this operation unless you hear it from Joe himself, which is why we carved out a keynote slot for him on Wednesday, Nov 8th at Tucson Convention Center.

We also strongly encourage everyone to stop by the open house at Creative Machines HQ on September 30th to get a preview of some other exciting things Joe and the team are dreaming up for our community, coming very soon!
