We had another great year hosting Tesoro’s 1830s Rendezvous and Spanish Art Market on the grounds of The Fort. Our guests were accompanied by family, friends, mountain men, artists, dancers and beautiful weather. It was an unforgettable and “waughsome” celebration!
The event was a fun day full of activities for the whole family. Guests were able to experience demonstrations from mountain men and women, trappers and traders. Our mountain men and women paired up with guests to teach them a thing or two about tomahawk throwing. Other demonstrations included fire making, artifacts of the fur trade, blacksmithing and more.
Educational volunteers taught children to create retablos using their chosen saint. They also showed the children how to make Mexican folk art paper flowers.
Thank you to Tesoro, artists, demonstrators, guests and all who donated, for making this year’s 1830s Rendezvous and Spanish Art Market such an enjoyable and educational weekend at The Fort.
