Verde Valley Wine Festival

Venue: Historic Clarkdale Town Park

The Verde Valley Wine Festival is Northern Arizona’s premier Wine and Culinary festival of the year, presented by Four Eight Wineworks and the non-profit organization, Made in Clarkdale. Due to the capacity crowd at the inaugural event on May 7, 2016, event organizers are excited to announce that the 2nd Annual Verde Valley Wine Festival will be held over Mother's Day Weekend on both Saturday, May 13 and Sunday May 14, 2017 from 1 - 5 PM. VIP attendees will receive early admission at 11 AM as part of their VIP Experience. 

The event highlights the community of Clarkdale and the Verde Valley at large with the goal of offering the finest Arizona wineries, breweries, spirits and restaurants committed to creating homegrown products for locals and visitors to enjoy. Guest viticulture lecturers, live music from Arizona bands, and art from Made in Clarkdale artists will enhance the festival experience as well. Each day of the festival will be different to the other with new restaurants, music, artists and guests speakers showcased.

The festival will be held in the heart of Arizona’s first planned community Clarkdale, Arizona. Clarkdale is the epitome of American industrialism. While the industry of the town has shifted from copper mining to entertainment, the driving philosophy of hard-work and ingenuity remains intact.
