The event will be held on Saturday, May 7th at the historic Clarkdale Town Park from 12 PM – 4 PM.

The event will highlight the community of Clarkdale and the Verde Valley at large, with the goal of offering the finest wineries, breweries and restaurants committed to creating homegrown products and authentic experiences for locals and visitors to enjoy from around the world. To jury the integrity of the event, we are excited to announce that all wines featured by any winery at the Verde Valley Wine Festival will be made with only Arizona grapes.

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.
