Sedona’s Secret 7 Campaign Launched

Sedona’s Secret 7 is a multi-media campaign that reveals hidden trails and locations in Sedona. The campaign was created to provide visitors with more reasons to return and extend their stay. Our intent is to also move visitors away from the popular trails that are getting worn out, like Devil’s Bridge, in order to help sustain our natural resources for generations to come.

August 3: Thursday

Yappy Hour
Multiuse field at Posse Grounds Park

Weekly social hour on the cool grass for friendly dogs and their owners.

Yappy Hour is a one hour per week event that takes place on the beautiful green grass of the multi-use field at Posse Grounds Park. Under normal circumstances, City Code and Park Rules require all dogs to be on a leash and to remain off the athletic fields at the park, but during this event we get to bend those rules!

Know before you go:

  • Owners must pick up after their pets.
  • If there is an increase in the amount of off-leash users on the athletic fields during non-event times, this event may be canceled.
  • PLEASE NOTE: the multi-use field is not a dog park. There are gaps in the fence where a pet could potentially squeeze through. There is no division of small dog vs large dog areas. Owners are responsible for the safety and behavior of their dogs.

Help us to make this a fun gathering for your dog!

For more event information, please contact the Sedona Parks and Recreation office at (928) 282-7098.

Lions (& Rattlers & Dragons & Longhorns) & Bears – Oh My! @ Sedona Heritage Museum 

Aug 5 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm 

“And so, in his quest for goals or gold, a man may lie to his friends, and work out ways to fool the law, and tie up all loose ends. And he may mask illicit tasks, and even face down danger. But in spite of his brain, and his place in the food chain…there’s no escaping nature.”

An award-winning actor, playwright, and historian, Michael Peach is especially good at bringing to life history and his subjects. But, he isn’t afraid to spin some tall tales, too.

This new show focuses on nature and animal friends (or foes) of the southwest. “…and according to this plan, God meant the hand of man to tame the wild and cultivate dominion. So the higher up, the gladder, here on evolution’s ladder. But maybe that’s a matter of opinion.”
