International Archaeology Day (IAD) is a celebration of archaeology and its contributions to society. Every October the Archaeological Institute of American and archaeological organizations around the world, such as the Verde Valley Archaeology Center, present archaeological programs and activities. The VVAC has traditionally held the Annual Gala, our most important fundraising event of the year, on International Archaeology Day.
This year we are going digital! Social distancing won’t stop us from virtually gathering together to support the mission of the VVAC. 2020 is also our Tenth Anniversary! So we are celebrating both International Archaeology Day and our 10th Anniversary on Saturday, October 17 at 7 pm, to enjoy an entertaining and interesting hour of speakers and entertainment. The Virtual Program agenda will be available soon.
Our traditional Silent Auction will also benefit Hopi, Zuni and other Native American artists who are struggling with the closing of their areas from tourists who have been a major source of sales. The Silent Auction and Raffle will open to bid or purchase raffle tickets on Sunday, October 11 and will close after the Virtual Program on Saturday, October 17 at 9:00 pm (MST).?
