Community is what brings people together, and for Camp Verde residents, there is no better way to become a part of your community than by volunteering at this year’s Cornfest. Conscious of the heat, volunteers are being sought to work just two-hour shifts. Between 1:30 pm and 11 pm on Friday and 9 am and 11 pm on Saturday, there are dozens two-hour shifts yet to fill.
“When you live in a community, you really need to give back to your community,” says Camp Verde Town Council member Bradford Gordon. “You owe something to your community when you live there, and volunteering is a good, easy way to do that.”
Camp Verde Promotions is a non-profit organization formed in 2008 to keep alive the traditions of Camp Verde’s annual Cornfest (dating back to 1991) and Fort Verde Days (dating back to 1956). Our mission is to provide events for the pleasure and benefit of the town residents, businesses and merchants as well as visitors. This is a group of local men and women who rely on the volunteer help of individuals and businesses in and around Camp Verde, Arizona.
In 2012, after a detailed surveying by the state officials, Camp Verde was given the distinction of being the geographical center of Arizona, located adjacent to Interstate 17 and State Route 260. Payson, Prescott, Flagstaff and Phoenix are all only an hour or so away. The Verde Valley has numerous tourist and outdoor recreational destinations plus many wineries that can be toured.
