THANKS TO ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE 2023 FIESTA DE LOS BOMBEROS EVENT!
The 17th Annual Fiesta de los Bomberos event is over and plans for our 2024 event are already underway. The success of this year’s event is the direct result of the support we receive from the community and the hard work of our committee members and volunteers. The reward for doing this is the help we provide with the money we raise. The money raised pays for cancer screenings, mental health counseling, and ultrasound heart scans. The Greater Tucson Fire Foundation donates 20% of the net proceeds from this event to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to assist them with their mission of honoring the Nation’s fallen firefighters, taking care of surviving family members of the fallen, and developing programs designed to reduce the number of firefighter deaths and injuries.
Mark your calendars for our 18th Annual Fiesta de los Bomberos Event – September 26 – 28, 2024. We hope you will continue your support of this event and encourage your friends, family, and business associates to join in the coming year. Thanks to all for your support…greatly needed…much appreciated.
Jim Grasham, Executive Director

Our name reflects the richness and culture of our region and the good time we have raising money for a great cause, supporting the men and women of the fire service.
Fiesta de los Bomberos is the time for firefighters, their families, friends and the community to celebrate and honor the men and women of the fire service. If you had the chance to thank these guardian angels, wouldn’t you? You can thank them by supporting Fiesta de los Bomberos.
