Have you tasted Arizona’s wines yet?

Where: Railroad Park, on Railroad Ave. in historic downtown Willcox
Cost: Wine tasting will be $10 for those over 21 and includes six tasting coupons and a commemorative Arizona Wine glass. Attendance and parking is FREE and open to the public.

Looking for more to do in Willcox? Check out the Rex Allen Museum, dedicated to preserving the memory of Rex Allen, who was the “voice of Disney” for years. If you’re a fan of country music, you might also stop by the Marty Robbins exhibit, which is also on Railroad Avenue. Marty is famous for his song, El Paso, but he has hundreds of other great songs. Outside Willcox’s downtown are Apple Annie’s Orchard and a number of other u-pick farms if you want to pick your own apples or pumpkins (can you say “pie”?).

Stop by the Willcox Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture for more information on places to see and things to do in the area.
