The Sedona Heritage Museum hosts many events for the community ranging from Christmas in the Park to the Fall Arts & Crafts Fair!
How did 3 affable Canadians, who robbed America’s banks & were considered to be the best in the business by the FBI, end up in Sedona?
The Stopwatch Gang made Sedona their home base to rob banks all over the US. In October of 1980, two members were arrested in Oak Creek Canyon. Sedona resident Jack Seeley became quite close with them while living here; he will chronicle their time in Sedona, how they got here, how they were caught, and their status today.
Come join us at this annual event of area artists & craftspeople!

Come spend an autumn afternoon at the Museum and hear ghostly tales – some of which have their origins right in our own back yard! Hear award winning actor and playwright Mike Peach use historical narrative, cowboy poetry, and tongue in cheek fun to weave these stories of mischief and mirth.
Join us to pay tribute to our nation’s veterans.
Paquimé, Chihuahua, Mexico is the most important archaeological site in the American Southwest and northern Mexico. Traders from this ancient city greatly influenced the Anasazi, Hohokam, and Mogollon cultures of the Southwest. Pottery from this site was the inspiration for modern Mata Ortiz ceramics. John Bezy, who has worked with the potters of Mata Ortiz for nearly 30 years, will discuss the archaeology of Paquime and the evolution of today’s world-class pottery.
Master artist Oralia Lopez will demonstrate how the pottery is painted, and a good selection of Mata Ortiz pottery will be available for purchase after the presentation.
From 1:30-3:00 p.m., Bezy will sign copies of his new book “The Mogollon Rim, Arizona: Geology, Vegetation, Wildlife”; it is a comprehensive exploration of the natural history of the Mogollon Rim region—from Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon to Payson and Show Low. Technically sound, the book is written in a clear, easy to comprehend style for readers who may not have formal training in geology and ecology. It is lavishly illustrated with color photos, satellite images, and diagrams. The book focuses on geologic processes that have shaped the beautiful and varied landscape.
