Clifton 150th “Founder’s Day” Celebration

Clifton’s “Founder’s Day” Celebration on November 4 will include other events occurring at the same time. The annual “Colors of Copper” Festival will be held on Saturday, Nov. 4 and Sunday, Nov. 5, 2023.  Other organizations (i.e., American Legion, Tourism Council, Social Club, Vietnam Vets, Historical Society, Greenlee County, etc.) have indicated an interest in holding activities that weekend to help celebrate the Town’s sesquicentennial birthday. All are encouraged to let the Town know when plans are finalized and we will promote them and include them in the Founder’s Day Program. The deadline for posting in the program is October 1, 2023.

Also, the “Founder’s Day” Committee is now working on the program to be held at Fernandez Park from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm and anyone wishing to be included in this program should reach out with their suggestions – singing, dancing, speaking, or any other kind of entertainment is welcomed.  Unfortunately, the Town is not in a position to compensate or make payments to anyone participating in the program.

Finally, we are currently in the process of seeking our Founder’s Day “royalty”, which will be the oldest male and female currently living within Clifton Town limits. Anyone wishing to nominate themselves or someone else should contact the Town of Clifton and provide a birth date for their nominee.
