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.
Dillinger Days weekend begins with the Dillinger Speakeasy, an exclusive Hotel Congress experience to travel back to the 1930’s. Celebrate the first night of Dillinger Day’s weekend with whiskey tasting, delicious appetizers, live music, premium cigars, a live gun show, era related entertainment and historic fun! Proceeds go to the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation raise funds to assist with the unmet needs in the fire-service community in the areas of advanced training, technology, survivor’s help, education campaigns, firefighter health and wellness, and other support services.
Tickets are $30 per person, 21+, and limited to 200 guests. This event sells out every year!
