AZ Best Fest: Celebrating the Arizona Experience

Au-Authm Action News

Arizona kicked off its centennial festivities with the first event of a three-part celebration that began in Prescott, September 16-18. This first event was held in Prescott because of the historical significance of the city—in the late 1800s, before Arizona became a state, Prescott was the capital of the Arizona Territory. The next part of the celebration will take place in Tucson, tentatively January 20-22, 2012, and the final celebration will be held in downtown Phoenix on February 10-12, 2012. Arizona’s official centennial birthday is February 14, 2012, marking 100 years since Arizona statehood on February 14, 1912.
