The Night Blooming Cereus
In late June, Tohono Chul hosts “Bloom Night,” an event centering around the Pinocereus Greggi plant, which blooms only one night of every year. Visitors gather to witness the Cereus plant, which looks like a lifeless stick, produce magnificent white flowers for one special evening. The event is free of admission, beginning at dusk and lasting until midnight.
Tohono Chul Park
Tohono Chul Park provides an intriguing and extraordinary glimpse into the fascinating beauty of Southwestern nature, art, and culture. Like the Sonora-Arizona Desert Museum, Tohono Chul has a breathtaking array of cacti and desert plants, and quail, coyotes, javalina, and snakes are just a few of the desert dwellers often seen along the winding footpaths. The Tohono Chul Park, however, delves into Tucson’s cultural heritage, presenting exhibits on native traditions and southwest art in a renovated historic building dating back to 1937. Entertaining and enlightening events are staged year-round, and are a great opportunity to learn more about the Southwest and Sonoran Mexico. The Park offers a wonderful gift shop where Southwestern artwork and jewelry can be purchased, and shares grounds with the Tea Room, where visitors can enjoy breakfast or lunch in a peaceful courtyard.
