About the Event

Beyond the Wall is a binational festival in Nogales featuring two block parties, a concert, an art exhibition, and a performance of 15-foot tall puppets at the border wall. Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate family and togetherness, and Nogalenses celebrate it where we grew up, because that's the only acceptable way to do it! Thousands of Nogalenses return home to celebrate with family, and the weekend after offers a chance to get out and catch up with others returning home. Nogales is an exciting edge of the world and we're gathering all of it's treasures to celebrate our uniqueness together. (#nogistyle) This November 24-25th, artists and community from Ambos Nogales will come together to create this family-friendly, bi-national cultural festival!

Schedule:

Led by Colectivo Taco de Perro, you'll get the first look at the next big thing in the art world.

SATURDAY NOV 25, 10a-4p: Arizona Block Party

We sniffed out the city's best artists, food and booze! Gather the coolest of your cousins and join us for the second annual Beyond the Wall Block Party at Karam Park. Dance off your Thanksgiving meal and laugh so hard you might actually remember what you're thankful for! A great list of local chistosos will be there, along with live music and a menu of local antojitos.

The party continues in Nogales Sonora at la Pesqueira! Come join us for more original art, local food and drink, and an evening concert featuring musicians from both sides of Nogales.

SATURDAY NOV 25, 3-5: Puppets at the Border

Flor is fifteen foot tall; she is from Sonora. Toby is fifteen foot tall; he is from Arizona. Flor and Toby will be at the festival looking for more friends who are just like them. If you see them, approach them: maybe you can help them. Toby, Flor, and the rest of their giant friends will go whatever distance is necessary and transcend all kinds of boundaries to unite. Let them guide you from one event to the next, as we overcome our frontiers and let our humanity take us Beyond The Wall as one community united.
