The Rialto Theatre will come alive with the sounds and sights of the Bayou, to kick off a Tucson themed CARNIVAL event. Attendees are encouraged to dress in the spirit of the celebration!

What is GUT?
The Gastronomic Union of Tucson (GUT) is a collaboration of over 30 local chefs and food professionals. Following Tucson’s designation by UNESCO as a World City of Gastronomy, the chefs of GUT came together to foster a culinary community of creativity, professional development, and community engagement.

The dynamic food scene of Tucson is more than its exceptional restaurants; it is the seed libraries, the food banks, the community gardens, the 4000 year agricultural history, the farmer’s markets, the breweries, wineries, distilleries, growers, ranchers, food writers, and most importantly, the Tucson community that supports them. GUT seeks to bring these elements together both to honor our food heritage and to foster culinary innovation and creative exchange.

The event seeks to raise funds for the two worthy arts and cultural organizations, the Rialto Theatre and Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance programming and events, as well as provide exposure and value to the participating restaurants, wineries and breweries.
