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.
Camp Verde’s history reaches back to the very beginnings of the Arizona Territory. It is the oldest community in the Verde Valley, having been established in 1865 to protect settlers from Indian raids, and is the home to Fort Verde State Historical Park. Camp Verde, even today maintains its rural appeal along the Verde River.
We hope families and friends will come to Camp Verde to visit and enjoy our community and do business with our local merchants. You’ll enjoy the beauty of the mountains, the lush green open spaces, and the beautiful flowing Verde River.
We welcome you to the center of Arizona!
