The Black Canyon Heritage Park Coalition thanks all of our participants, volunteers and exhibitors (with their assistants/volunteers) for a fun and successful WinterFest and BookFest at Heritage Park.   Everyone's exhibits, assistance, valuable time, expertise, and energy ensured the participants enjoyed and learned a great deal.  This event was made possible in part due to our Sponsor - Central Arizona Conservation Alliance.

Over 300 people attended the event - enjoying exhibits (and activities), the museum, our Chamber of Commerce visitor center, AZ Water/Ways Preview, park tour, food, and more.  See the pictures taken by Georgette Beisel at

Stay in touch as we plan our next year's event.
