Sedona, Arizona, comes alive during the fall with festivals, events, and the opportunity for adventure – come and enjoy all this season has to offer.

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED STATES - September 23rd, 2015 -  

Sedona, Arizona is a beautiful place to visit any time of the year, but it truly shines in the fall.  As the weather cools, Sedona remains mild and comes to life with seasonal events that bring together people from different places and different cultures for a truly unique experience.  With festivals, parks, and fairs on the calendar, spend some of your autumn in Sedona.

On October 10th and 11th, come and see the gorgeous artworks populating the Sedona Arts Festival! This year marks the 25th anniversary of the festival, so join us in celebrating of a quarter of a century of beauty and talent.  The proceeds from the festival are used to support art education in the greater Sedona area.  To date, the festival has donated over $300,000 in scholarships and education funding.  Located at Sedona Red Rock High School, the Sedona Arts Festival features many different kinds of mediums from oils to ceramics to metals.  There is something to catch anyone’s eye with the diversity of works shown by the one hundred and twenty five artists appearing at the festival.

If you are more interested in cultural experiences than purely artistic ones, then come to Tlaquepaque Square on October 24th for the annual Dia de los Muertos celebration.  Dia de los Muertos has a history reaching back hundreds of years in Mexico.  The core of the holiday are the beautiful altars and offerings made to the friends and family members who have died as a way of remembering them and support their spiritual journey.  The celebration in Sedona begins at two in the afternoon with altars, fire dancers, food, and face painting for guests.  Traditionally, the offerings, or “Ofrenda,” are done in a special place in the home, but today the creation of portable offerings for exhibition has become a much more popular mode of expression especially in Arizona.  Expand your knowledge of this beautiful and meaningful holiday by joining us for an afternoon and evening of food, dancing, and the creativity of the Ofrenda.

If adventure has a greater pull than either of these options, Sedona has hundreds of miles of hiking trails and many state and National Parks that can be explored.  Cooler months like November are a perfect opportunity go exploring!  The cooler weather makes it possible to spend longer days outdoors without the heightened risk of overheating as in the summer months.  Take leisurely walks through the famous and picturesque Red Rock formations; bike across open trails with captivating valleys and hills; or take a day trip up to the Grand Canyon – one of the seven natural wonders of the world.  The possibilities are nearly endless.  With many pet friendly locations, there are plenty of areas to be discovered and explored with your four-legged best friends too.  It is also possible to arrange guided tours of many of these beautiful places if that appeals to your kind of traveler!

Fall in Sedona is beautiful and exciting.  Creativity and tradition flourish alongside history and nature in this captivating town.  Come and explore Sedona this fall with friends and family – discover something new regardless of whether it is at an art festival or on a walk among the hills.  In between these moments of discovery, unwind and relax at El Portal Sedona Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel right in the heart of the town.  Just steps away from the fine food and eclectic shopping of Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village where the Dia de los Muertos is celebrated.
