This year’s festival T-shirt features food from 9 different cultures/regions, accompanied by a greeting in the language spoken in those places. Can you name all 9 languages? all 9 food items?  

Screen printed posters, mugs, tote bags, and aprons will also be available at the Festival Store (located in Jacome Library Plaza): consult map here.

The T-shirt was designed by Tucson graphic designer, printmaker, and illustrator, Alex! Jimenez.

Alex!’s work explores her connection to her heritage, the landscape, and the city that has held her family for five generations. Her project, “Abecedario del Sur,” highlighted vernacular signs in South Tucson. Her most recent work, “The Talking Mural,” is a collaborative mural using interviews to create a visual story of the business community on South12th Avenue.
