This will be a special weekend at Catalina State Park with concerts on both Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 6 p.m., join us for Mike Moutoux, New Mexico's Enchanting Cowboy (Acoustic Guitar, Cowboy Songs). Then on Sunday, May 4, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. Jimmy and the Jitterbugs will take to the stage (oldies).

Visitors should meet at the trailhead, bring a chair and your own food and water to enjoy these concerts! Concerts will be canceled during severe weather. While you are enjoying the park, listening to great music, and munching on free popcorn, the Friends of Catalina State Park (FOCSP) will be hosting a raffle. FOCSP is one of the Tucson-based charities participating in the Jim Click 2014 Jeep Cherokee Raffle. Raffle tickets cost $25 each or five tickets for $100. The drawing to select the winner of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee will be held on November 13, 2014. You do not need to be present to win. All proceeds from the raffle tickets will benefit FOCSP and Catalina State Park.

The Friends of Catalina State Park (FOCSP) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose mission is to promote the interests of Catalina State Park, to mobilize support for park projects and activities and to raise funds for the Park.
