Are you ready to enjoy your summer?
After the past year and the nearby fires, hopefully the rest of this summer will be better for the mind, body, and soul.
As the weather becomes warmer, it provides us with fresh opportunities to get out, explore, and fully enjoy all that multifaceted Sedona has to offer.
And what better place to create memorable moments to be forever treasured within our hearts? Whether you’re a resident, visitor, or soon to be community member, there are a plethora of rich experiences ranging from soul-soothing relaxation to exhilarating adventures.
When you hear about an event called the Firecracker Express, what adjectives comes to mind? Perhaps anticipation, surprise, excitement, non-stop fun, and stimulations on all levels of one’s being?
This 4th of July, come join the small town of Clarkdale in a series of lively experiences organized by Verde Canyon Railroad.
Enjoy a scenic train ride along the Verde River
Also visit with our national symbol, a bald eagle, from Liberty Wildlife’s educational program.

Ready for a sweet, “corny” experience?
Search no further. This July 17th, come join Verde Valley’s Cornfest, an old-fashioned family event that stemmed from its famous sweet corn grown at Hauser and Hauser Farms in Camp Verde.
Though it was first celebrated over 25 years ago, the universal tradition of having fun continued because, who doesn’t enjoy plenty of food, fun, games, music, vendors and, of course, sweet corn?
And if you’d like to enjoy a Vintage baseball game, head to Fort Verde State Historic Park, where they also host a Victorian Christmas ornament-making event for kids as part of the Christmas in July celebration.

Summer Starlight at Verde Canyon Railroad
Imagine for a moment a mysterious journey into an untamed and unspoiled terrain—the exceedingly rare ribbon where high desert meets the river—where sunset blends into majestic moonlight.
What does it feel like? Wonder no more. This July 10th, is your chance to personally experience Verde Canyon Railroad’s monthly Starlight excursion.
It’s sandwiched between two protected national forests, and adjacent to the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness, and it departs the depot during the cooler temperatures of later afternoon.
If you already have something scheduled that day, no worries! It’s also available on select Saturdays, through September.
For more information please visit the Summer Starlight at Verde Canyon Railroad website.
Enjoy a series of educational and inspiring presentations on photographic technique, use of digital software and personal artistic perspectives from some of the top photographers in the country.
The fest will be from June 16th through June 18th virtually.
For more information please visit the Sedona PhotoFest website.
