Verde Valley Archaeology Center Events
Immerse yourself in Native American culture and the archaeology of the Verde Valley of Central Arizona. The Verde Valley Archaeology Center hosts two main events each year. The annual Festival of Native American Film and American Indian Art Show is held in the Fall. The annual Verde Valley Archaeology Fair and American Indian Art Show held in March as part of Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month celebrations. All our events are held in historic Camp Verde, Arizona.
The Verde Valley Archaeology Fair is held annually during Arizona Archaeology Awareness Month in March. The next Fair will be March 30-31, 2013. The Fair features archaeology exhibits, demonstrations, an "archaeology for kids" area, and an International Archaeology Film Festival featuring archaeology documentaries from around the world.
The Fair also includes an American Indian Art Show.
The Verde Valley Archaeology Center recognizes the American Indian heritage of the Verde Valley with an annual Festival of American Indian Art for artists from throughout Arizona and the Southwest. The event promotes greater public appreciation and understanding of American Indian artistry, encourages artistic achievement in a variety of media and establishes a stronger market for American Indian art. The American Indian Art Show will be held for two days on September 28 and 29, 2013, inside the Camp Verde Community Center, Camp Verde, Arizona.
The Native American Film Festival provides a venue for feature films, shorts, videos and documentaries of USA American Indian and Canada First Nation communities. We often include feature films by indigenous people of other countries.
Public screenings and events will be held for two days on September 27 and 28, 2013, in Camp Verde, Arizona. The 2012 film selections are available on the Film Page.
