Welcome To Caballeros de Yuma Website

The Caballeros de Yuma were formed in 1962 by a group of 20 businessmen for the purpose of greeting groups and VIPs who visited Yuma (AZ) County. A second purpose was to sponsor special events, which publicized and attracted visitors to the City and County of Yuma. From those humble beginnings, the Caballeros have grown to almost a hundred strong – all local businessmen who work voluntarily without pay. and Our events also have grown in number, size and stature, making them among the most popular activities in the Southwest.

Proceeds from the events directly benefit community organizations, many of which volunteer their time and energy to assisting the Caballeros in producing top quality events. Youth organizations, local high schools, youth athletic teams, service clubs and other non-profits contribute numerous hours of labor to make events such as Midnight at the Oasis a success. Since its creation the Caballeros de Yuma have contributed through its events in excess of $3 million to the Yuma community.
