Agave is one of the most recognized plants in the region, with more than 125 species throughout the Tucson metro area. The versatile plant is known for its medicinal, nutritional, horticultural and spiritual properties. Agave has been used for mezcal distillation for generations.


“The Agave Heritage Festival is very much a living, breathing event. Because of this, we get to see it evolve and grow every year, and 2024 is no exception,” said Francisco Terrazas, programming and partnership director, Agave Heritage Festival. “Through a lot of hard work on the part of the entire team, the festival continues to be a celebration of not just the agave plant, but the entire borderlands region.”
