2016 Fort Verde Days



Print Event Schedule in Black and White

For sixty years, Fort Verde Days has served as the community’s annual homecoming while also celebrating the military post around which the town of Camp Verde grew.

A carnival, parade and a host of events at Fort Verde State Historic Park highlight the three-day event.

Our Board of Directors is working hard to plan a great festival for this 60th year. Our wish list is long and we hope to be able to do it all but it takes a lot of planning, a lot of volunteer work and a lot of leg work. Below are details about the events.
