32nd Annual Solar Potluck and Exhibition

As some of you may know, solar cooking is one of my hobbies, and I am the chair of Citizens for Solar. Our Annual Solar Potluck is the longest continuously running solar event in the world. While this is not really a beer event, beer is allowed in the park. Please join us for the Potluck dinner and bring a few beers (maybe with a "sun" or "solar" theme) to share/enjoy .

Catalina State Park

(11570 N. Oracle Road, near Mile Post 81)

10:00 am - Sunset

Join Citizens for Solar and experience the flavors of solar-cooked food and learn about solar by viewing solar appliances and exhibitions (ovens, fountains, coolers, lights, toys) and solar arts. The event is co-sponsored by Catalina State Park, Arizona State Parks.

We'll have speakers and musicians throughout the day on a stage with a PA system powered by solar energy The Potluck itself is at 5:00 pm. Bring your own oven and join us for cooking (oven set-up by 9:30 am, event opens to the public at 10:00 am), or if you do not cook with us, visit with us and bring some "solar" food to share: salad, watermelon, berries, etc. Ice is always welcome.

Bring your own eating utensils (plate/bowl and fork/spoon) and help make Tucson's Solar Potluck a waste-free event. Make sure you wear comfy shoes, a brimmed hat and sunscreen. The festival will be held come sun, rain or wind!

The cost of the Solar Potluck is free; $7/car to get into the Park.

If you have questions or would like more information about the Solar Potluck, please contact Bruce Joseph at [masked] or[masked]

Citizens for Solar is a Tucson, Arizona-based non-profit solar energy organization. Our mission is to educate the general public about the benefits of solar power by demonstrating solar technology and helping people become part of the solar culture. To this end, we put on one major event each year, The Annual Solar Potluck and Exhibition. We also educate Tucsonans at public events, teach children about solar at schools, and give our advice and insights on community committees for solar and energy.

    The Solar Potluck will take place regardless of weather. If we can't solar cook we will have a barbecue/potluck.

    Don't let the weather keep you away!

    Hello Bruce! Is there anyone in your group that is versed in solar-energy used for heating a swimming pool?
