Dear Friend and Supporter of Tesoro Cultural Center,
We hope this season of gratitude and holiday cheer finds you healthy and safe as we continue to face the challenges associated with the pandemic. We are excited to begin planning for a new year and the events we love to have. We hope to see you at our signature events and lectures throughout the new year!
Thanks to a variety of grants, donations, and memberships we have received, we will be able to move forward with what we do best – preserving Colorado’s rich history. Thankfully, we received a large portion of the requested grant from SCFD (Scientific and Cultural Facilities District), as well as some grants from new sources. The out-pouring of donations and memberships at increased levels is amazing and we are extremely grateful for the generosity we have seen.
We are looking forward to resuming our educational programs with modifications to protect everyone’s health and safety. The Historic Lecture Series is all set to go and as of now, we are expecting them to be live – in-person lectures. Our two market events and Holiday events are in the planning stages and on the calendar! Rest assured, all events will follow state, local, and CDC guidelines to insure a safe environment for all.
The dates for the events are:
- Indian Market and Powwow – June 5 & 6, 2021
- Spanish Colonial Art Market and Rendezvous – September 11 & 12, 2021
- Farolito and Pinecone Ceremony – Sunday following Thanksgiving 2021
- Member Only Holiday Auction and Costume Party – To be Determined 2021
- Las Posadas – Christmas Eve 2021
Please visit our Historic Lecture Series page to see the lecture calendar, topics, and lecturers for the 2020-2021 season. We have a fabulous year in the making and look forward to seeing you again – we would love to have you take part in what we do best – preserving the traditions, culture, and history of our past. Your continued support will help Tesoro survive the challenges that lay ahead. Here’s to a great 2021!

From art and cuisine to historical re-enactments and music, Tesoro’s mission is to create community based events and educational outreach programs designed to enrich and celebrate our cultural heritage.
