Other Upcoming Flagstaff Events

Palette to Palate (April): This fundraiser has raised thousands of dollars over the past 17 years for the CCC Fine Arts Department and more importantly has helped the College provide a quality arts program for CCC students and community members. Dollars raised from the event have helped the art department make equipment purchases to enhance the student experience, provide funding for field trips and merit based scholarships. Last year, the Foundation sponsored a series of summer art workshops for community life-long learners.

CCC faculty, students and artists throughout the community contribute their work for live and silent auctions. Art aficionados come for the excellent prices, while lovers of great food come to sample hors d’oeuvres from Flagstaff’s finest restaurants and to sip wine and beer provided by local distributors. This event is in its 17th year and just keeps getting better and has traditionally been held on the last Friday of April. 


Students First Celebration, formerly the Annual Meeting, Award and Alumni Breakfast (October): The Students First Celebration is the CCC Foundation’s signature event, where community members come together to celebrate the success of scholarship recipients and be recognized for their contributions to the College. Scholarship recipients and alumni tell stories triumph and share how scholarship donations have changed their lives. The Annual Meeting attracts local business and community leaders and is the essence of what the community college is all about.
