Celebrating Forty Years! Join Yuma Symposium for a very special anniversary celebration of this remarkable gathering of artist from around the country.
February 21st - 23rd, 2019
The Yuma Symposium is a series of demonstrations, lectures and slide presentations given by both internationally recognized and emerging artists who have demonstrated unusual talent. Activities include an exhibit of work by presenters and a student show, the National Saw, File, & Solder Sprints, the annual pin auction, shopping and eating in Algodones, Mexico, and a fiesta and dance on Saturday night.
The Yuma Symposium begins on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019 with registration, a social gathering and the traditional pin swap from 3:30 - 6:30 p.m. at Lute’s Casino, 221 S Main Street. Slides and informal introductions of the presenters will follow at 7 pm.
This two-day festival will pack Main Street with mouthwatering BBQ, a country music concert each night, mechanical bull riding, outdoor yard games, our kids’ corner featuring new attractions, dozens of unique
craft vendors, and of course, ice cold brew from Yuma’s first and only microbrewery, Prison Hill Brewing Co.
Are you ready to feel the burn?!
CAMP INFERNO is an adventure immersion program allowing participants to experience a day in the life of elite women in fire and life-safety services. The goal of the program is to afford the opportunity for “real world” experience where young ladies are encouraged to challenge themselves on numerous physical and mental fire-fighter tasks in a controlled setting. Your child’s safety is always our number one priority and we will be taking all necessary precautions to ensure a safe and responsible camp day. We look forward to seeing you at CAMP INFERNO this February!
