If you’re looking for fun things to do in Tucson, also consider Bisbee. Mineshaft weekend returns to Bisbee September 22-26, 2022. This year it’s bigger and better than ever. Tickets and dog tags are on sale now via their website. Here’s everything you need to know before attending the largest gay men’s weekend of the year.

Ticketing For Mineshaft Weekend

Besides being a nice souvenir, they come with added benefits like moving to the front of the line. You’ll also receive merchant discounts, raffle tickets, and more! The Dog Tags include free VIP entry into most events.

You must have Dog Tags to gain entry to the Man Cave and Camp Flamingo. There will be no ticketing for these events. Dog Tags will not get you into the Comedy Show, Queen of the Copper Camps, and the Eggstravaganza Brunch. These events are an additional fee.

If you only want to attend for a day or go see specific shows, you can always buy your tickets separately for each event. Your third option is paying a cover at the door. Mineshaft does not recommend this as the venues are small and sell out quickly. Ticketing prices range from $5-33 per event.
