Tesoro Cultural Center's 1840 Rendezvous & Spanish Colonial Art Market
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 weekend will feature award-winning artists, each displaying artwork in various art mediums.
