Every Spring since 1974, University of Arizona students put together an amazing long weekend of fun for other students and Tucson residents called Spring Fling. Spring Fling, located at the Rillito Downs, is a huge carnival with rides, games, prizes, booths, food, and so many more things to do!
Spring Fling is different from other carnivals and fairs because it is run entirely by UofA students! Proceeds from Spring Fling go to clubs and organizations around campus.
If you love rides, you’ll definitely want to check out Spring Fling because they now have over 30 awesome rides. If rides make you queasy, don’t worry, there are tons of carnival games to play. There is also lots of live entertainment.
Fling has a wide variety of food, too! Sponsors include, Papa John’s
Pizza, Starbucks, Eegee’s, Jimmy John’s, and more, as well as booths
with food made by various campus clubs!
Conveniently, if you’re near UofA campus, you can take the free shuttle from Old Main to the Rillito Downs.
to Spring Fling is $5, unless you are a UofA student, child under 7, or
member of the military, in which case it’s free! Tickets for rides and
games are sold individually, or in sheets.
Spring Fling is
usually in April every year, and lasts from Thursday through Sunday. We
definitely recommend this cool thing to do in Tucson!
