November Activities in Fountain Hills

 

november-pic-1hello-novemberThe Cup of Festivities “Runneth Over” in November!

Some celebrations are reflective, like our observance of Veteran’s Day at Fountain Park, while other events, like the Thanksgiving Day Parade, offer opportunities to share happy traditions with friends and family. But most of all, the beautiful Fall weather in Arizona beckons us outside to enjoy Sonoran Lifestyle at its finest.

 

World-class Tennis, Internationally ranked endurance Cycling races, The Fall Festival of the Arts, the Turkey trot, and the Southwest’s largest Thanksgiving Day parade…just a few of the hundreds of multi-generational happenings in the lush Desert Foothills we call home.

NOVEMBER 18, 19, 20, 2016:  Orme Dam Victory Days

nov-17-ft-mcdowell-reservationEach November, the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation in Arizona celebrates their 1981 victory over the federal government, who proposed to construct the Orme Dam at the confluence of the Verde and Salt Rivers. The project would have flooded the reservation and relocated the Yavapai people. With limited financial resources, individuals from the community spearheaded an opposition movement that rallied the support of fellow tribal members, other Indian tribes and non-Indian groups.

By referendum in 1976, the community members voted 144 to 57 against selling their land to the federal government for the dam site. Then on November 12, 1981, after consulting with the Fort McDowell Tribal Council and the Governor’s Advisory Committee, Interior Secretary James Watt announced that Orme Dam would not be built.

The annual victory celebration includes:

  • Intertribal Powwow
  • All-Indian Rodeo
  • Basketball, softball, and golf tournaments
  • Yavapai Village, showcasing cultural performances from different tribes of the Southwest
  • Arts and crafts vendors
  • Authentic native food vendors

The Fort McDowell Rodeo Grounds located on Hwy. 87 about 3 miles east of Shea Blvd.
