Fort Verde State Historic Park Celebrates "Fort Verde Days" October 12-13

The Fort Verde Days celebration will be held on Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13, 2013.  Fort Verde State Historic Park celebrates Fort Verde Days with a flag-raising and lowering ceremony, living history presentations with re-enactors, special presentations, Dutch oven cooking demonstrations, military drills and a vintage baseball game.

The weekend offers the public a chance to get a glimpse of the past, while celebrating Fort Verde Days in conjunction with events throughout the town of Camp Verde. The entire family is invited to this event as the Town of Camp Verde celebrates with additional activities held in the community center, on the soccer field and throughout the town - there's even a Fort Verde Days parade on Saturday at 10 a.m. At the park, cheer on the Fort Verde Excelsiors, as they take on the Stars and Stripes or listen to Dr. Sam Palmer as he presents the history of the Battle of Big Dry Wash.

Travel back in time to experience Fort Verde's past with tales about less-than-sumptuous food, hot wool uniforms, difficult living conditions, poor quality equipment and the everyday duties played out by the Verde Valley's residents. Fort Verde State Historic Park is home to four original adobe buildings and many military artifacts. Re-enactors will be on hand to provide living history presentations.
