Tesoro Cultural Center will host its annual 1840 Rendezvous & Spanish Colonial Art Market weekend on Saturday, Sept 14, and Sunday, Sept 15, on the grounds of Colorado’s iconic restaurant: The Fort.  Open to the public, the even runs from 10am to 4pm each day.  Admission is $5, and free for children ages 12 and under.  Tickets can be purchase online at www.TesoroCulturalCenter.org.

Each year, Tesoro Cultural Center commemorates Far Western Mountaineers and the Fur Trade, including trappers, traders, American Indians, Hispanics, teamsters and military of the Bent’s Old Fort era (1833-1849). Bent’s Fort, of which The Fort is an exact replica, was an important fur trading fort that operated along the Santa Fe Trail in the early 19th century.

A day at the 1840 Rendezvous & Spanish Colonial Art Market is a day in the early West, offering engaging and immersive fun for the whole family. Historic interpreters will show guests day-to-day skills from the 1840s, such as horse and mule packing; fire-starting; beadwork; sign language; blacksmithing; moccasin-making; arrow-making; wool processing; and more. Guests will be able to put these newly found skills to the test, under the guidance of bonafide Mountain Men and Frontier Women. Additional activities include handling demonstrations with a Bald Eagle and other birds of prey, courtesy of Hawkquest; storytelling; live music and performances by Rex Rideout and The Southwest Musicians; and a Rendezvous Scavenger Hunt for kids.

The 1840 Rendezvous & Spanish Colonial Art Market weekend festivities will kick off on Friday, September 13, with a Tesoro Member-exclusive “Meet the Artists Patron Party,” from 6-9 p.m. at The Fort. Guests will have the first opportunity to purchase award-winning art and the evening will feature live music provided by Spurs of the Moment. Hearty hors d’oeuvres, courtesy of The Fort, will be provided alongside a cash bar. Membership and $20 tickets to the “Meet the Artists Patron Party” can be purchased at //www.tesoroculturalcenter.org/membership.
