Camp Verde celebrates with fort history, wine, pecans and antiques this weekend
Special to the Courier

Buffalo Soldier re-enactors will offer living history presentations at Fort Verde State Historic Park this weekend in conjunction with Camp Verde's Wine, Pecan and Antique Festival.

The Fort Verde events run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday.

The fort events also will feature flag raising and lowering ceremonies, presentations and a vintage baseball game.

Buffalo Soldier re-enactors will be dressed in period replica uniforms and equipment issued by the United States Army during the 1870s Indian War period.

The first Buffalo Soldiers troop serving at Fort Verde was Troop I, 10th Cavalry of the Buffalo Soldiers. It was organized in 1866 and came to Fort Verde in 1885, following a distinguished record of military service during the Indian Wars of the Western frontier.

The Wine, Pecan and Antique Festival will take place in the neighboring community center. It will feature wines from the Verde Valley and Arizona, pecan pies and desserts, booths loaded with antiques and collectibles, agricultural demonstrations, a car show, art, vendors, music, a nut contest and more.
