40th Anniversary Party

...it all started in 1984

You are invited to celebrate 40 years of CFI! We are pulling out all the stops for this one.

The event kicks with a hike, followed by lunch and time to explore PVFC with CFI guides. After an iconic Professor Valley sunset, we’ll have a social hour, dinner, and presentations by archaeologist Don Montoya and writer Heidi Redd. The party continues into the evening with live music from The Butch Cassidies.

Since this is our 40th Year, the theme is Ruby Anniversary on the Red Rocks. Dress in your best Ruby colored outfits, BYO Ruby colored drinks, and don’t forget good shoes for dancing!

Spend the night under the stars!

For those of you who want the full PVFC experience, you are welcome to camp with us on Saturday night and stay for breakfast on Sunday. This free option is available upon registration for anyone who would like to stay the night.

There will be tipis and bell tents with cots available, or tent spots if you would like to bring your own camping gear. If you plan on driving home in the evening, plan for a safe ride!

We are throwing this party for free! If you would like to help offset the cost of this event, there will be an option to contribute upon registration. You can also donate to support CFI's Mission. Thank you!
