The Arizona Team co-sponsors a Linux Installation Festival on the First and Third Saturdays of each month with the Phoenix Linux User Group (PLUG) at UAT. We first started collaborating with them doing Installfests in 2008 and as a result now offer two per month instead of one. We currently have 1 portable server to host ISO's and have just added a PXE server to speed up some installs. Since March 2015 through December 2017 we have hosted 62 installation festivals (including one Tucson and three in Sierra Vista) attended by 960 people resulting in 208 successful installs and numerous repairs, Linux and FOSS instruction/training sessions, and personal and Team project completions.
- Ubuntu Hour Events are currently being held in Tempe AZ on the 1st and 4th Thursday of each month and Sierra Vista AZ on the 4th Thursday of each month month.
