Signature Events

The Arizona Centennial Commission, through its Arizona Centennial 2012 Foundation, took the leadership role in creating, managing, and implementing several events. In addition, the Commission assumed  responsibility for raising funds or creating revenue streams to support each of the Signature Events, including sponsorship opportunities and recognition for privately contributed dollars from individuals, corporations and/or foundations.

If you only did one thing to celebrate the Centennial, we hope you chose to attend one or more of our Signature Events. Choc-full of world-class musical acts, historical trivia, and unrivaled cultural offerings, these events will only happen once in your lifetime!
