February in Sedona is one of Arizona’s best kept secrets! Why we want it a secret is anybody’s guess. At 5,000 feet it rarely snows, and when it does it melts almost as quickly as it falls; here you can golf and ski in the same day! There’s less congestion with fewer tourists, and some fantastic Sedona vacation packages. Plus there is so much going on in Sedona for the next few weeks.
This weekend (Feb 1-2, 2013) is the 8th Annual Sedona Marathon. All of Sedona will welcome thousands of runners, their families and friends for a weekend of fierce competition and good old fashioned camaraderie to our beutiful home of Sedona, Arizona. The 5K, 10K, Half and Full Marathon races will take over 2,000 runners through scenic Coconino National Forest District, known for its magical red rock formations. Join us for all the fun, including the awards ceremony at Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village Saturday from 3:00-5:00pm.
The following weekend (Feb 7-11, 2013) is the inaugural Sedona Yoga Festival. An authentic, from the heart yoga and healing arts conference here in mystical Sedona.
