Mobs of history buffs, fans of the 1930’s, pop culture enthusiasts, and more crowd the historic Hotel Congress annually to pay homage to the man that famously earned the title Public Enemy No. 1 and his nationally-renowned apprehension. Each year The Hotel Congress hosts a two-day spectacle in honor of the capture of America’s most notorious outlaw by the Tucson Police Department and the Tucson Fire Department.

The second day of our Dillinger Days family-friendly festivities includes three Dillinger’s capture reenactments, historical artifacts exhibit, vintage car show, historic lectures, arts & crafts, historical walking tours of downtown, and the actual Tommy Gun on display.
