The Cave Creek Museum's Featured Exhibit this year revisits the legacy of Geoffrey Platts, conservationist, naturalist, and "Desert Crusader". Geoffrey Platts lived a very simple life and believed it was important for people to reduce, recycle and reuse materials to help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away and reduce human's carbon footprint on the Earth. Learn a few crafts that will help you recycle everyday "throw-away" items by creating something useful from them!
Join us us for our favorite fundraiser, the Cave Creek Museum's Annual Miners' Dinner on March 22nd, 2022, from 4.30-8.00 pm. We will dine al fresco to a special menu prepared by 5 star reviewed Phoenix Palate while listening to the tuneful stylings of cowboy balladeer Mike Ewing and be entertained by a historic fashion parade presented by the Famous and Fabulous Cowgirls Historical Foundation. This year, as well as an amazing Silent Auction offering an array of specially curated items, we will be having a Special Raffle for a Hot Air Balloon Ride for 2, courtesy of Rainbow Ryder Hot Air Balloons. All this is preceded by a special run of the Golden Reef Stamp Mill and Blacksmithing demonstration. Your support and attendance of this event allows the Museum to continue to grow and serve our community and guests.
So you want to be a star? This Sunday afternoon acting workshop led by the Desert Foothills Theatre will help you discover your inner actor with fun and creative exercises that inspire your imagination.

The Cave Creek Museum is excited that well-known artist, ceramicist, muralist and art educator Robin Ray will be leading this Kiwanis' sponsored art event. With her trademark good humor and sense of whimsey, Robin will teach our young artists special watercolor techniques and they'll have a work of art to take home! Weather permitting, we will be outside "painting the Desert". Limited seating--please pre-register! This Children's program is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Carefree.
