The Southwest's Premier York Rite Festival

Every October York Rite Masons from Arizona, California, Nevada, and New Mexico gather to confer the Degrees and Orders upon worthy Candidates, as a courtesy to their home Bodies.

In our over quarter century history we have had the honor of conferring the Degrees and Orders of York Rite Masonry on well over 1000 candidates from twelve jurisdictions, from both North and South America.

Attending the conferral of the Degrees is the "Masonic Motivation", but the Colorado River Fall Festival is really about camaraderie, fraternalism, education and cooperation. You'll see some of the finest ritual work in the Southwest - we have been used by smaller Bodies as a model for their work. In addition to the conferrals on Monday and Tuesday, there will be Candidate Orientation Sunday evening, a Fellowship Banquet (with entertainment following) on Monday evening, 

Festival Canceled for 2021!
