The Town of Chino Valley, AZ has a long and rich history, known for its abundant farm land that helped feed generations of indigenous cultures, the location of the first Territorial Capital of Arizona in the 19th Century, to the sprawling vistas and beautiful scenery we enjoy today.
Then in September 1970, Chino Valley was incorporated, and we are preparing a year long celebration to mark our 50th Anniversary.
The celebration begins with various events in 2019 culminating in a Golden Jubilee Celebration on our Territorial Days Labor Day Event in September of 2020.
We are seeking help from the community to share your memories, family history, photos, home movies, and other milestone events that connect us all together to make our town such a great place to live.
Please contact us via email atwith your comments, suggestions, and submissions to include in our celebration.
Some of the features of our Golden Jubilee Celebration include a book chronicling the towns history, commemorative souvenirs such as posters, stickers, & T-Shirts, and a Town Time Capsule that will serve as a treasure for future generations.
We hope you will take time to complete one of our questionnaires to help make our Golden Jubilee the best party Chino Valley has ever seen!
