Looking for a way to engage the family in some cultural fun this summer? The Tesoro Cultural Center in Morrison is launching its new Living History Experience June 2, with 20 themed weekends including American Indian, Spanish Colonial and Western, plus award-winning artists, film screenings, historical presentations in period attire and historical artifacts that visitors can touch and interact with.
The events will run through October 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday through Sunday, on the grounds of The Fort restaurant, 19192 Highway 8, Morrison. General admission is $5 per person and free for children ages 6 and younger. Also on the calendar: the 17th annual Powwow on June 3 and the 1830s Rendezvous (September 16-17).
“Our mission has always been to create community-based events and educational programs designed to enrich and celebrate our cultural heritage,” says Holly Arnold Kinney, executive director of Tesoro Cultural Center and proprietress of The Fort, in a release.
Tesoro, a nonprofit, works to protect and bring awareness to Colorado’s history with Southwestern, Spanish, Mexican, Native-American, African-American and early European cultures, focusing on their historical and artistic treasures, like art and food.
