the party

San Pedro Chapel is one of the hidden gems of The Old Pueblo, hidden in the Fort Lowell neighborhood and built by residents of the neighborhood in 1932 and served as their principal place of worship for decades. Now, it is exclusively reserved for special events, and boy are they special. We put together a little soiree to honor Tucson traditions and spending quality time with those you love.
