The University of Arizona South (UA South) and the University South Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the Arizona Folklore Preserve, Inc. (AFP), joined forces in 2002 to construct a new performing arts, cultural and multi-event center.

Nestled in Ramsey Canyon, this beautiful facility is being used for the collection and preservation of folklore of the Southern Arizona/Northern Mexico region, and as a venue for folk artists and performers to interact with students.

The Arizona Folklore Preserve offers a unique combination of convenience and rural charm with peaceful surroundings in a place of great natural beauty. This facility is a multi-event cultural center that can be used by a broad range of cultural groups, corporations, and other institutions as a site for meetings, conferences, seminars or retreats. The conference room is suitable for groups of up to 60 people. Other services are available such as equipment rental and a spacious living room for breaks, refreshments or meals during events.
